Morris' move to Toronto helped Blue Jays to title
“The competitive fire that Jack has, that’s an important fact to us,” Ash told the AP. “The winning attitude…the ability to be in these key situations and come up big all the time, that was important to us.”
In 1992, Morris went 21-6 for Toronto, leading the AL in victories and finishing fifth in the American League Cy Young Award voting. Toronto defeated the Braves in the Fall Classic to give Morris his third World Series ring, and he would add a fourth the following year when the Blue Jays repeated as champions.
Morris pitched for Cleveland in 1994 in his final big league seasons, finishing with a record of 254-186, 175 complete games and 2,478 strikeouts.
He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2018.
