The Greatest Athlete To Wear #8 is Joe Morgan
Notable #8’s in baseball- my all time favourite player Willie Stargell wore #8. When I think of 8 I think of him. Yogi Berra, Gary Carter, Bill Dickey, Carl Yastrzemski, – and Cal Ripken Jr- a lot of great #8’s in baseball.
In football- Troy Aikman, Ray Guy, Steve Young, Larry Wilson and Archie Manning.
In basketball Walt Bellamy.
In hockey -Mark Recchi and Barclay Plager.
The Greatest Athlete To Wear #8 is Joe Morgan. I know a lot of people would take Yaz or Ripken or Stargell over Morgan but if I were picking a team Morgan would be the player I would want. He could beat you in so many ways. He was the engine that drove the Big Red Machine. The greatest second baseman in baseball history. Joe Morgan is my choice as the greatest #8.
