Not this year for Jack Morris.
Not this year for anybody.
The Baseball Writers Association of America failed to elect anybody to the Hall of Fame Wednesday afternoon. Players need to appear on 75 percent of ballots for enshrinement; former Astros second baseman Craig Biggio (68 percent) led the way.
Morris, the former Tiers ace, received 67.7 percent, up 1 percentage point from last year.
This was his 14th year on the ballot. He gets one more shot, next year.
Former Tigers shortstop Alan Trammell received 33.6 percent in his 12th year. That’s down from 36.8 percent last year.
This is the first time since 1996 that the writers failed to elect a single player.
