From Reds great, second baseman Joe Morgan, on being elected to the Hall of Fame:

“I take my vote as a salute to the little guy, the one who doesn’t hit 500 home runs. I was one of the guys that did all they could to win. I’m proud of my stats, but I don’t think I ever got one for Joe Morgan. If I stole a base, it was to help us win a game, and I like to think that’s what made me a little special.”–Joe Morgan
