Former Tigers stars Jack Morris and Alan Trammell were elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday via the Modern Baseball Era ballot.
The Hall of Fame board-appointed electorate for the Modern Baseball Era ballot held 16 voters. The voters were allowed to choose up to four nominees, and finalists needed at least 75 percent of the vote to be elected into Cooperstown.
Trammell and Morris were joined by fellow finalists: Steve Garvey, Tommy John, Don Mattingly, Marvin Miller, Dale Murphy, Dave Parker, Ted Simmons and Luis Tiant.
Morris pitched 18 seasons for Tigers, Twins, Blue Jays and Indians, winning 254 games and earning five All-Star Game selections. He also once reached 67.7 percent in the BBWAA ballot before his eligibility expired.
Trammell, who played shortstop for the Tigers from 1977-96, finished his career in elite company for his position, but was overlooked by the BBWAA.
