Alan Trammell and Jack Morris were elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday by the Modern Era Committee, announced on Sunday night from the MLB winter meetings in Orlando, Fla.
Trammell and Morris were teammates on the Detroit Tigers for 14 seasons, from 1977-1990. They were two of 10 candidates on the Modern Era ballot.
The Modern Era Committee considers former managers, executives, and umpires, plus players who are no longer eligible on the Baseball Writers Association of America ballot, whose primary contributions to baseball came within 1970-87.
Seventy-five percent of the votes from the 16-person committee are needed for induction. Morris received 14 votes and Trammell received 13 to earn induction. Ted Simmons fell just short with 11 votes, and longtime players union head Marvin Miller received seven votes. All other candidates received fewer than seven votes.
Trammell spent all 20 of his major league seasons with Detroit, hitting .285/.352/.415 with 185 home runs and 412 doubles. The six-time All-Star was the runner-up for the 1987 American League MVP.
Morris was 254-186 with a 3.90 ERA in his 18-year career, and spent 14 years with the Tigers. The right-hander had 2,478 strikeouts and topped 200 innings 11 times. Morris was a five-time All-Star and finished in the top five of Cy Young voting in five different seasons.
In his 15 years on the writer’s ballot, Morris topped out at 66.7 percent in 2013, his second to last year on the ballot. Trammell reached only as high as 40.9 percent on the BBWAA ballot, doing so in 2016, his 15th and final year on the ballot.
Morris and Trammell will be inducted to Cooperstown on Sunday, July 29, 2018, joined by any players elected by the Baseball Writers Association of America. The BBWAA voting results will be announced on Jan. 24, with newcomers Chipper Jones and Jim Thome plus holdovers Vladimir Guerrero and Trevor Hoffman possibly enshrined.

Take those letter jackets and cheerleader outfits out of mothballs!! Kearny Principal Ana Diaz-Booz has made a special request from Kearny alumni. She has created a Kearny memorabilia haven in the high school’s main office. Trophies, signs, and sports clothing adorn the walls in an area that looks more like a living room (comfy and warm) than a sterile high school office.
Principal Ana is asking for donations or loans of any Kearny memorabilia to display as part of Kearny’s history. She promises that items will be well taken care of, displayed in shadow box type frames, and items will not be handled after being placed on display or until returned to the original owner or placed in storage if donated.
Please contact Principal Ana Diaz-Booz at Kearny (858) 496-8370 for further information. Thanks in advance to everyone for contributing. Go Komets!!
