Here's what it says on the Hall of Fame plaque for former Detroit Tigers ace Jack Morris:

JOHN SCOTT MORRIS

"Jack"

Detroit, AL, 1977-90; Minnesota, AL, 1991; Toronto, AL, 1992-93; Cleveland, AL, 1993

Intense competitor with a spirited drive and determination who propelled his teams as staff ace. Three-time 20-game winner and five-time All-Star harnessed split-fingered fastball to become winningest pitcher of the 1980s. Won 19 regular season games — and each of his three postseason appearances — for Detorit's 1984 juggernaut. Durable workhorse totaled 175 complete games, most of any pitcher since 1975, and made record 14 straight Opening Day starts. Winner of four world championship rings with three clubs. Earned 1991 World Series MVP honors, carrying Minnesota to title with 10-inning shutout in Game 7.
