Jack Morris Gives His Thoughts On Falling Short On Hall Of Fame Election – VIDEO
Former Major League Baseball pitcher Jack Morris received 61.5% of the necessary 75% of the vote from the Baseball Writers' Association of America in their annual voting for the National Baseball Hall of Fame on Wednesday.
Unfortunately, for Morris, he came up short for the 15th-consecutive year, meaning that he will no longer be on the BBWAA ballot.
It should be noted that Morris may still be inducted into the Hall of Fame one day, if say the Veterans Committee puts him in.
Morris, a 5-time All-Star, pitched 18 years for the Detroit Tigers, Minnesota Twins, Toronto Blue Jays, and Cleveland Indians, compiling 254 wins, 2,478 strikeouts, and a 3.90 ERA.
The three-time 20-winner spoke to MLB.com about Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, and Frank Thomas being voted into the Hall of Fame, while he fell short of the necessary required number of votes for the final time.
