Hall-of-Famer Jack Morris, Bally Sports Detroit to part ways in 2023

Hall-of-Fame pitcher and three-time World Series champion Jack Morris will not return to the Bally Sports Detroit broadcast booth for the 2023 season, multiple sources told The Detroit News.

Morris, 67, had been part of the Tigers’ TV booth since 2019, rotating in the analyst chair with former Tigers Kirk Gibson, Dan Petry and Craig Monroe. According to sources, Monroe, who had been used mostly in pre- and postgame segments, will take over Morris’ workload in the analyst chair alongside play-by-play announcer Matt Shepard.

Petry will take on a larger role before and after the games. Gibson, who also serves as special assistant to president of baseball Scott Harris, has had his workload reduced in recent years, though he is still expected to be part of the broadcast team in 2023.

Neither the Tigers nor Bally Sports immediately confirmed the news. Reached via email, Bally’s senior vice president and general manager Greg Hammaren politely declined comment.

Morris was clearly the worst of the four. I really like Petry and Gibson.
