 Biographical Information
Jim Morrison pitched in 3 games for a very bad 1988 Atlanta Braves team. Morrison pitched fairly well. He pitched 3 and 2/3 innings, giving up 3 hits, 0 runs, walking 2 and striking out 1. His only strikeout victim was pitcher Craig Lefferts. Morrison had a good year as the Pittsburgh Pirates' everyday 3rd baseman in 1986, batting .274 with 23 HR and 88 RBI, but he only hit .152 with the Braves and was given the job of mopping up in blowouts, usually reserved for the the last position player off the bench.
He had 7 RBIs in a game on June 1, 1986 while playing for the Pirates against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He hit a double, a triple and a grand slam in the game. The Pirates won 12-3. It was the only grand slam of his career.
In 1989, he played for the Bradenton Explorers of the Senior Professional Baseball Association. He hit .290 with 55 RBIs and a league-leading 17 homers. Morrison played the most games at third base in the league with 72 games. In 1990, Morrison played for the St. Petersburg Pelicans, also of the SPBA. He played in 5 games and was batting .650 when the league folded.
Morrison was a coach for the GCL Phillies in 2000. He was a roving infield instructor for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2002, and was a coach for the Batavia Muckdogs in 2003 and 2004. In 2005 and 2006, he managed the GCL Phillies, and in 2007, he led the Columbus Catfish to a South Atlantic League championship. After one season there, he became skipper of the Vero Beach Devil Rays.
Morrison's son, James Morrison III, played minor league ball from 2004-2010.
