Angels hire Hal Morris as director of pro scouting
The Los Angeles Angels have hired former major-league first baseman Hal Morris as their director of pro scouting.
The Angels added Morris to new general manager Jerry Dipoto's staff Monday.
Morris spent parts of 13 seasons in the majors, starting with the Yankees and eventually spending 10 years with the Cincinnati Reds. He won the 1990 World Series with Cincinnati, providing the sacrifice fly that turned out to be the game-winning RBI in the series clincher.
Morris has been scouting for just three seasons, working for Pittsburgh for two years before joining the Boston Red Sox last season as an internal scout. After his playing career ended, he earned an MBA from Stanford and worked in real estate development.
Morris joins assistant GM Scott Servais on Dipoto's new staff.
