HALL-MARKED DUO

Author:

Thirty-three years after winning a World Series with the Tigers, shortstop Alan Trammell (above, left) and pitcher Jack Morris will be reunited in Cooperstown. Last week the pair, both drafted by Detroit in 1976, was elected to the Hall of Fame by the Modern Baseball Era Committee, which considers candidates whose 15-year eligibility has expired. Trammell, a six-time All-Star, was the MVP of the '84 Series, driving in six runs in a five-game win over the Padres. Morris, a 254-game winner, earned that award in '91, after he pitched one of the most memorable postseason games ever—a 10-inning Game 7 shutout of the Braves.
