Before becoming one of the best baseball pitchers, Jack attended Brigham Young University, from which he was drafted by the Tigers in the 1976 MLB Draft, but didn’t make a single MLB appearance until 1977 when a spot in the Tigers’ line-up was freed following the injury of Mark Fidrych. He struggled in the first two years, but from 1979 cemented his position in the Tigers’ rotation system, and became one of their best players. He stayed with the Tigers until 1990, winning one World Series in 1984. and the same year won his first Babe Ruth Award, then making four All-Star appearances, in 1981, 1984, 1985, and 1987.Furthermore, he was an MLB wins leader in 1981, and AL strikeout leader in 1983.
In his last season with the Tigers, Jack was a part of a locker room incident; he was interviewed by Jennifer Frey, and during the interview Morris said – “I don’t talk to women when I’m naked unless they’re on top of me or I’m on top of them”, which resulted in a complaint by the Miami Herald, a magazine for which Frey worked at the time.
So Jack was out of the Tigers the following season, signing a one-year contract with the Minnesota Twins. He posted another successful season and won his second World Series, and this time, he was also the MVP of the series as well as ioningn his second Babe Ruth Award, only the second player in the history of the game to win this award twice in his career, the other being Sandy Koufax.
Following the end of his contract, Jack joined the Toronto Blue Jays on a two-year deal, which increased further his net worth, especially as with the Blue Jays, he won two consecutive World Series, however, he wasn’t much of a help for his new team in both championship seasons, though in 1992 he was the MLB wins leader for the second time in his career.
Having become one of the best players in the ‘80s, Jack’s payment rose according to performance, hence, he was the highest-paid player in 1987, 1988, 1991, and then in 1993.
Before his retirement, he was a part of the Cleveland Indians, but was released by the club before the 1994 start. He then joined the Cincinnati Reds, but soon after signing a contract, he retired as he wasn’t up to the task of continuing to play major league baseball.
This was in 1995, but the next year he joined St. Paul Saints of the independent Northern League, however, after ten games and a record of five wins, one loss and a 2.69 ERA, he officially retired.
Regarding his personal life, Jack is married to Jennifer, with whom he has one child.
He enjoys fishing, and hunting in his free time, primarily in the Minnesota fields and lakes.
