Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"If there is one youngster in baseball who should stop, look and listen, it is Ray Morgan, second baseman for the Griffmen. Morgan has an edge on all candidates for second base through his experience. One of the chief necessities in a winning ball club is a smooth-working infield. Morgan knows how to work with ( George ) McBride and ( Chick ) Gandil around the diamond, and this will count in his favor when the training season gets under way. But Morgan must get into real snap to hang on. The Old Fox will give him every opportunity to show his class, driving him hard, if need be, but it's up to Ray himself to take things seriously and play the best ball of which he is capable." - Sportswriter Louis A Dougher in The Washington Times (February 19, 1915, 'Today's Sportorial', Pae 1)

Ray Morgan and George McBride were an absolutely stellar double-play duo during the dead-ball era for the Washington Senators ( Minnesota Twins ). However, Ray Morgan is best remembered for one, yes, just one, of his three-hundred and twenty walks.

The Babe took the mound at Fenway Park for the first game of a Boston-Washington doubleheader on June 23, 1917 . Umpire Brick Owens called the first three pitches to leadoff batter Ray Morgan all balls. After heated jawing, Ruth blew up on Owens' ball four call and charged with fists flying. Shore loyally maintained decades later that Ruth hadn't actually struck Owens, but the Bambino admitted in his autobiography, "I really socked him, right on the jaw...They'd put you in jail today for hitting an umpire." Teammates had to drag the ejected hurler off the diamond.

Player-manager Jack Barry summoned Shore from the bench for an emergency start. "Try to get through this inning," he said. Shore tossed his five allotted warm-up pitches and began. Morgan tried stealing on the first pitch but Boston catcher Sam Agnew gunned him down. Shore then retired two batters with five more pitches and returned to the dugout. The big right-hander said he felt fine, so Barry sent him to the bullpen to warm up properly while Boston batted.

Shore came back out and retired the next 23 consecutive batters. Then Mike Menosky stepped up to the plate, the last chance for the Senators. The speedy outfielder laid down a bunt ordered by manager Griffith . The bunt was "pretty good," Shore recalled, but Barry rushed in from second for a bare-hand grab and flip to first for the out. Shore had retired each of the 26 batters he'd faced, plus the man left on base by Ruth .

Years later the former mathematician calculated that he hadn't thrown 75 pitches the whole game, which he called the easiest he ever pitched. "I just threw it up there," he said years later, "and they hit it to the outfield or the infield." (He believed he had pitched better in September 1915 during a crucial 12-inning, 1-0, win at home over Harry Coveleski of the Tigers.)

"Modest Ernie Shore took a place in the Hall of Fame as a no-hit, no-run, no-man-reached-first base pitcher," the Boston Globe later proclaimed of the Washington game. But whether it constituted a perfect game or simply a unique no-hitter would be debated for decades. The only clarity in 1917 came from William Harridge, secretary of the American League. He wired a sportswriter a month afterward: " Ernie Shore is credited with a no-hit game in the official scores of June 23

Chuck Knoblauch (101 DP in 1997), Bob Randall 124 DP in 1976), Buddy Myer 138 DP in 1935), Bucky Harris (107 DP in 1925, 100 DP in 1924, 120 DP in 1923, 119 DP in 1922 & 102 DP in 1921) and Ray Morgan (58 DP in 1914 & 61 DP in 1913) are the only second baseman in franchise history ( Twins / Senators ) to lead the American League in double plays - Morgan was the first.

Did you know that the first home run Ray Morgan ever hit occurred on June 5, 1912, and it never even left the park? A fourth inning, inside the park homer off Chicago White Sox right Joe Benz , that is described below in a fashion long forgotten:
