Morgan was elected with another first-time candidate, Jim Palmer of the Baltimore Orioles.

Morgan’s Hall of Fame plaque reads:

“Impact player who lifted Cincinnati’s ‘Big Red Machine’ to higher level with his multi-faceted skills.  Trademark was flapping left arm as he awaited pitch.  Packed unusual power into extraordinarily quick 150-lb frame.  Played 22 seasons and also holds home run and games played record for 2B.  NL MVP, 1975-76.”
