    Jack Morris apologizes for apparent racist joke at Shohei Ohtani

    Detroit Tigers Hall of Famer and Bally Sports Detroit game analyst Jack Morris apologized during the ninth inning of Tuesday’s game against the Los Angeles Angels for making an offensive comment earlier in the telecast. 

    In the sixth inning, Tigers pitcher Joe Jimenez struck out Juan Lagares, setting up a two-out, runner-on-second scenario for Angels superstar Shohei Ohtani. 

    Tigers play-by-play announcer Matt Shepard asked Morris, who won 254 games in his 18-year major league career and was a four-time All-Star with the Tigers, what the strategy should be against Ohtani. 

    Morris replied: “Be very, very careful,” but in an apparent tone that has long been used to mock English-speaking Asians.
