John Morrill

John Morrill – Boston manager 1882

1882 brought  the first time that the Boston Red Caps (now the Atlanta Braves) would change managers. Harry Wright was out. John Morrill was in. This would be the first of many managerial changes over the years.

As a player, he was known as “Honest John”.

The Red Caps improved. They moved up from sixth place the year before to tie for third. A fairly impressive 45-39 record.

Change. It is constant. It is baseball.
