    Joe Morgan honored in Oakland


    Baseball hero honored
    The wheels of government came to a stop Tuesday for councilmembers to honor hometown hero Joe Morgan, the Hall of Fame second baseman who was praised for supporting youth sports in the city.

    Morgan was twice the National League MVP and a star on the legendary Big Red Machine Cincinnati Reds' teams, which won back-to-back World Series titles in the 1970s.

    It was contributions personally and financially to the Young American Baseball Program, the Oakland Unified School District Sports Program and the Joe Morgan Youth Foundation that won over the Council.

    Morgan, who moved to Oakland at age 10 and attended Castlemont High School and Merritt College, had tears in his eyes upon being honored.

    "It's not about honors," he said, of his contributions. "It's about trying to give people the opportunities that I had growing up here."

    Considering their track record this is a gold star move for the Oakland City Council.
