Cherrypicked for sure but that's one wide date range.
I believe it was this article you're referring to.
This provides a conundrum for me. My qualification for the HOF is simple. Was this player one of the best at his position for at least a ten year period and productive for at least fifteen years? Morris clearly fits that qualification. But it's more because there were not many above average starters during the years he played. Still haven't made up my mind on him.
