A Tip of the Hat to Jack the Cat

On April 18, 1995, Jack Morris retired from baseball. Jack the Cat was my favorite Tigers player and despite my loathing of the Twins and Blue Jays, I rooted for him then too.

In 1992 he went 21-6 with Toronto but had a miserable postseason: 0-1 with a 6.57 ERA in the ALCS. In the World Series he fared worse: 0-2, 8.44. His last year in the bigs was in 1994 when he went 10-6 in 23 starts for the Indians.

Jack’s Career Stats
254 Wins
186 Losses
527 Starts
175 Complete Games
28 Shut outs
2,478 Ks

Tell me again why he’s not in the Hall of Fame.
