Morris Falls Short

Former Twins pitcher Jack Morris was not elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame on Wednesday.  Morris received just 351 votes, which was just 61.5-percent of this year’s vote from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.  After 15 years of eligibility, Morris is longer eligible to be on the ballot but could be selected by the expansion-era committee.
