Jack Morris Signing Autographs (Video)
Jack Morris is a former MLB pitcher who played from 1977-1994. Morris put together a great career, winning 254 games, making five All-Star appearances and claiming four World Series titles. Morris spent most of his career with the Detroit Tigers, where he made four of those All-Star games and was part of Detroit's 1984 championship team.
In 1991, the St. Paul native signed with his hometown Minnesota Twins. That season, Morris helped the Twins win the world championship after pitching a very memorable 10-inning shutout in Game 7 of the World Series, earning him series MVP honors. Morris signed with the Blue Jays the following season, where he won his final two titles.
Recently, iFolloSports.com captured the above original video of Morris signing autographs at AME Sports, in the Twin Cities suburb of Roseville, Minnesota.
Wednesday, it was announced that Morris once again did not receive election to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Morris garnered 61.5 percent support from the Baseball Writers Association of America, falling 78 votes short of the 75 percent needed for induction. 2014 marks the 15th and final year of the 58-year-old's initial period of candidacy. Morris, who has been on the borderline for enshrinement into Cooperstown, now has his fate in the hands of the veterans committee, who will reconvene in 2017.
