Jack Morris embarrasses himself with offensive accent when discussing Shohei Ohtani
By Evan Desai
Bally Sports Detroit color analyst Jack Morris made a fool out of himself when talking about how the Detroit Tigers should pitch to Shohei Ohtani during the LA Angels game on Tuesday night.
Matt Shepard, the play-by-play analyst for Bally Sports Detroit asked Morris what the Tigers plan of attack should be in pitching against Ohtani in the ninth inning. Jack Morris said they should be “very, very careful,” but said it while offensively mocking an Asian accent.
Morris, a Baseball Hall of Famer, did ‘apologize’ for his comments, but his apology was a joke:
“I did not intend for any offensive thing and I apologize if I did,” said Morris.
Well, he did, so it really doesn’t matter that it wasn’t his intention.
“I sincerely apologize if I offended anybody,” said Morris.
So he only apologizes if someone heard and was offended? He doesn’t apologize for simply saying something derogatory like that? This guy’s an absolute clown.
Jack Morris should be fired from Bally Sports Detroit after these offensive comments about Shohei Ohtani.
These derogatory comments about Shohei Ohtani should keep Jack Morris far from any broadcast booth forever.
He’s obviously very bad at his job if he somehow took a question about pitching to a hitter and found a way to make it a derogatory jab at Asians.
It will be disappointing if we continue to see Morris calling the rest of this Angels vs. Tigers series. He’s proven through not only his comments on Ohtani, but his fake ‘apology’ that this is who he is, and that person doesn’t belong calling baseball games.
