Bucs Hire Hal Morris

The Pirates announced that Hal Morris has joined the Scouting staff as an Area Supervisor in the upper Midwest. The announcement was made by Director of Scouting Greg Smith.

The 43-year-old Morris played 13 seasons in the Major Leagues from 1988 through 2000 and compiled a .304 career average, 246 doubles, 76 home runs and 513 RBI in 1,246 games. He spent 10 of those seasons with the Cincinnati Reds, capturing a World Series title in 1990. The former first baseman finished second to Terry Pendleton in the 1991 National League batting race (.319 to .318) and ended the 1996 campaign with a career-high 29-game hitting streak. Morris also batted .335 during the strike-shortened 1994 season, ranking fourth in the N.L.

After retiring from baseball following the 2000 season, Morris continued his education by graduating with an MBA from Stanford University.
