Twitter Tuesday: Logan Morrison

With a third inning single Monday against the Cardinals, Florida Marlins rookie Logan Morrison has reached base in 39 consecutive games...the second longest streak in franchise history.

The team record of reaching base safely in 47 consecutive games was established by Luis Castillo in 2002.

Another record that the 23 year-old has to be closing in on is the "most tweets in a day" given dude knocked out 145 tweets since Friday morning.

That's close to 40 a day, people!

All that aside, one of my favorite new big leaguers on Twitter is Morrison given the fact that he is trying to have a personal connection with each of his 7500-plus followers.

It's rare that you'll find anyone, much less a professional baseball player, that will respond to your thoughts and well wishes.

So do yourself a favor, give @LoMoMarlins a follow and who knows...he might just drop you a line.


And if you're looking for some inspiration, check out these two stories that MLB.com featured recently about Morrison and his dad Tom...who is battling Stage 4 lung cancer.
