    Red Sox Nation welcomes Red Sox Skipper Joe Morgan

    It has been twenty years since Morgan's Magic captivated Red Sox Nation. Joe Morgan from Walpole, Ma. lead the team to an improbable comeback to take the American League East by a single game. Joe Morgans Highlights: In 1966, Morgan became a manager in the farm system of the Pittsburgh Pirates, rising in 1970-71 and 1973 to the AAA level. In between, he served as a Pittsburgh coach under Bill Virdon in 1972. In 1973, Morgan's Charleston Charlies won 85 games and the division title, but lost the finals of the International League playoffs to the Pawtucket Red Sox in five games.
