Warren Morris

Warren Morris is a former college and Major League Baseball player. He is most remembered for his 9th inning walk-off home run that won the 1996 College World Series for the Louisiana State University Tigers and won him the ESPY award for “Showstopper of the Year.” Morris joined the LSU baseball team after graduating as Valedictorian from Bolton High School in Alexandria, Louisiana in 1992. He did not receive an athletic scholarship to play baseball, but made the team while on academic scholarship as a second baseman. While at LSU he helped the Tigers win 2 National Championships in 1993 and 1996. He was named All-American 2nd baseman at LSU in 1996 and was the recipient of the Jim Corbett Award as the outstanding amateur athlete for the state of Louisiana. Morris received a degree in zoology and was a three-year letterwinner for the Tigers. His best season at LSU came in 1995. He would hit .369 with 8 home runs, 50 RBIs and 18 stolen bales. At the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Morris won a Bronze medal as a member of the United States national team. He led the team with a .409 average and produced 5 home runs.

Morris was drafted in the fifth round of the 1996 Major League Baseball Draft by the Texas Rangers. He started out in the Rangers’ farm system, but was later traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates. He made his major league debut on opening day of 1999, going from non-roster invitee in spring training to starting second baseman early in the season. Morris had an exceptional rookie season with the Pirates, hitting .288 with 15 home runs and 73 RBIs. He finished third in the National League Rookie-of-the-Year voting and made the 1999 Topps All-Star Rookie Roster at second base. Morris also played for the Minnesota Twins and the Detroit Tigers during his four year Major League career. He announced his retirement from baseball in 2005.

Warren is currently working at Red River Bank in his hometown of Alexandria, Louisiana. He is married to Julie O. Morris and has twin nine year old daughters, Hettie and Amelia, as well as, a three year old daughter named Stafford. He is an active member of Calvary Baptist Church.
