Nellie helped Morgan immensely at bat and in the field. Remember how Morgan would flap his arms against the side of his body while at bat, that was because Nellie thought that Joe had his arms to close to his body while swinging which hindered his extension, so Joe flapped his arms as a reminder.

PS. It was more than a rumor that Sox manager Al Lopez who didn't get along with Nellie (and Billy Pierce) was instrumental in keeping Nellie out of the HOF during his time on the HOF Veterans Committee.
