Joe Morgan Owns One Silver Slugger Award For Offensive Output By A Second Baseman

The Silver Slugger Award for offensive excellence at each defensive position debuted in 1980.

It was not long before Joe Morgan was chosen as the best offensive second baseman in the National League.  He won the award just once – in 1982.

His numbers from that season included:  .289 batting average, .400 on-base percentage, 134 hits, 19 doubles, 14 home runs, 61 RBI, 68 runs scored, 24 steals, and 204 total bases.

Atta Boy, Joe!!!
