(St. Paul, MN) -- Former Minnesota Twins pitcher Jack Morris is awaiting the results of this year's voting for the National Baseball Hall of Fame. He is in his 15th and final year of eligibility to be elected by the Baseball Writers' Association of America and if he's in the class when it's announced today will become only the third player ever selected in his last year of eligibility. Morris was the ace of the Detroit Tigers staff in the 1980s when they won the 1984 World Series and was a star on the 1991 Twins squad that also won the title. He was 42 votes shy of being elected last year.
