Thomas Morgan batted better than .400 as a junior and senior and was one of the sparkplugs who helped Lafayette's baseball team advance to the NCAA Tournament in each of those seasons.
In 1958, with Morgan as a senior
captain, the Leopards went beyond regional play
and became one of the eight teams to advance to
the College World Series in Omaha, NE. And
even though they were eliminated with two
straight losses, Morgan was recognized as a second
team All-American. His .447 batting average that
season ranks among Lafayette's best ever. A pesky
singles hitter who rattled the opposition with his
daring baserunning skills, the 5'8", 160-pound
Morgan improved his yearly batting averages from
.326 as a sophomore, to .411 as a junior, to .477 as
a senior, for a career average of nearly .400. The
team's record for three seasons with Morgan as
a starter was 56-21-1.
