Twilight Tigers: Warren Morris

Every Tuesday the Hot Corner takes a look at stars in the game of baseball came to finish their careers with the Detroit Tigers.

Warren Morris, you say, a star?  This guy was twice a Tiger with LSU in college and Detroit.

Also, Morris hit walk off homers in the College World Series in 1996.

That summer Morris played for Team USA in the 1996 Olympics, winning bronze.

Morris was drafted by the Rangers in the fifth round of the 1996, would be dealt to the Pirates with Todd Van Poppel, make his debut in 1999, played for the Twins in 2002 and finally landing in Motown.

Morris became a starter for the Tigers in 2003 when Damion Easley was released, playing in 97 games, hitting .272 (346 AB), 6 HR, 37 RBI.  This would be the last season in the pro's for Morris.

Keep it Hot on the Corner, pat.
