Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"In a move that is unheard of today, (Mike) Morgan made his Major League debut a few days after he was drafted against Baltimore as a teenager without any minor league experience [ Straight to the Big Leagues ]. Not even Stephen Strasburg went directly from San Diego State to the Washington Nationals . 'I gradated from high school and went on a senior trip. I got drafted and Charlie Finley ( A's owner) had me on an airplane to Oakland . Four or five days later I was starting against Baltimore ,' Morgan said. 'I got a standing ovation, and had my dad, my mom and my sister sitting behind the dugout. It was an amazing experience.'" - Daily Herald Writer Neil K. Warner (08/05/2010, Former MLB pitcher Morgan's baseball knowledge rubbing off at Pleasant Grove , Source )
