John Scott "Jack" Morris (born May 16, 1955) is an American former Major League Baseball starting pitcher, and played between 1977 and 1994, mainly for the Detroit Tigers, winning 254 games throughout his career. Armed with a fastball, a slider, and a forkball, Morris was a five-time All-Star (1981, 1984, 1985, 1987, and 1991), and played on four World Series Championship teams (1984 Tigers, 1991 Twins, and 1992–1993 Blue Jays). While he gave up the most hits, most earned runs, and most home runs of any pitcher in the 1980s, he also started the most games, pitched the most innings, and had the most wins of any pitcher in that decade.
Morris is currently a color commentator for the Detroit Tigers on Fox Sports Detroit. He has also recently been an analyst for MLB broadcasts on Fox Sports One.
