We say happy birthday to Jack Morris who was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, on this day in 1955. He became one of the best right handed pitchers of the last 40 years.
Morris came up with Detroit in 1977. He won 17 in 1979 and his career really took off after that.
Overall, he was a workhorse: 254 wins, 3.90 ERA and 179 Complete Games.
He pitched 2 complete games in the 1984 World Series when Detroit beat San Diego.
We remember him for pitching a classic 1-0 10-inning shutout for Minnesota in game 7 of the 1991 World Series.
He came back and helped Toronto win it all in 1992.
A great pitcher, specially in the post-season: 7-4 and 5 complete games.
A workhorse of a pitcher! One of my favorites!
Morris was inducted into The Hall of Fame in 2018.
