Thomas  Morgan

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.
