MONROE, Ohio (AP) — Former Cincinnati Reds second baseman Joe Morgan hopes to sell some red machines — and plenty of vehicles in other colors — at his new auto dealership in southwest Ohio.
Morgan took part in groundbreaking Tuesday for the future site of Joe Morgan Honda. He is the majority owner of the business that will be just off Interstate 75 in Monroe, roughly midway between Cincinnati and Dayton.
The baseball Hall of Famer says he likes the location and is hopeful the economy will be stronger when the dealership opens next summer.
