Why is Jack Morris Trending? It Has Something to Do with Shohei Ohtani

Written by Nate

The name Jack Morris is currently of the top topics trending on Twitter, and it is not for a good reason.

It turns out that the Detroit Tigers TV analyst made questionable comments in a foreign accent towards Los Angeles Angels’ All-Star Shohei Ohtani. Those comments lead him or being suspended indefinitely by Bally Sports Detroit.

Morris did apologize live on air from those comments as he watched the Angels beat the Tigers, 8-2, but it appeared by the tone of his voice, it was too late for him.

Well just now, Bally Sports Detroit has announced that they have suspended Morris ‘indefinitely’ from commentary. In their press release, they said that the analyst must take bias and diversity training in the process.

He might have been a good major league pitcher in his heyday, but as an analyst, it’s not a very good look.

It’s gonna be a while before Morris comes back, and it would not be surprising if he might not come back to commentating Tigers games in the near future.
