QUIZ: Where Did Joe Morgan Grow Up?
The answer: Oakland!
I know this because on five seperate occasions during the Padres/Dodgers/Jackie Robinson Appriciation Fest, he has made the statement "I grew up in Oakland." This always followed someone (Gammons, Miller, a guest) mentioning something regarding getting more African-American youth involved in baseball. It is only the 7th inning.
