“World Series 2021 – Braves’ Charlie Morton threw 16 pitches on a broken leg — and then apologized it wasn’t more”

Charlie is a good pitcher and a good luck charm. He’s played for three different teams in the past five years, and all three have gone to the World Series in one year or another!

He has had an odd career. It was miraculous that he survived the first half of it, when he struggled through a 46-71 record with a 4.54 ERA, with about 6 strikeouts per 9 innings. He found himself back in the minors nearly every year in that stretch, and suffered through a string of injuries and surgeries. He then came to life at age 33, and since 2017 has been 61-24 with a 3.34 ERA and about 11 strikeouts per 9 innings.
