Biographical Information[edit]

Morgan, Chief Bender and Jack Coombs on a sheet music album from 1912, celebrating their Philly team

After the 1911 season, pitcher Cy Morgan joined teammates Albert Bender and Jack Coombs from the Philadelphia Athletics to perform in a touring vaudeville show named "Learning the Game". The show was quite successful, as the illustration to this article depicts.

He had a brutal fall from grace. He went 15-7 for the A's when they won the World Series in 1911, then in his first start of 1912, pitched a one-hitter to defeat the Washington Senators, 3-1, on April 12th. However, it was all downhill from there, as he won just twice more that season, going 3-8 before being sold to the minor league Kansas City Blues on July 15th. He only pitched one more time in the majors after that, with the Cincinnati Reds in 1913, finishing at 78-77 in 10 seasons.

Notable Achievements[edit]

  • 15 Win Seasons: 3 (1909-1911)
  • 200 Innings Pitched Seasons: 4 (1908-1911)
  • Won two World Series with the Philadelphia Athletics (1910 & 1911) (he did not play in either World Series)
