Joe Morgan Is A 10-Time All-Star

Joe Morgan made his first appearance as an All-Star in 1966, his fourth season and second full-time campaign in the majors.  He then did not make another All-Star team until 1969.

It was his arrival in Cincinnati that escalated his status in the big leagues and allowed him to show his full potential and value to a team.  Traded to the Reds in 1972, Morgan made the All-Star team in his first season with the club and eight season run of consecutive All-Star game appearances – for all eight years with the Reds.  The run was incredible and it cemented Morgan’s status as the best National League second baseman of the 1970’s.
