Jack Morris attempted an Asian accent while talking about pitching to Shohei Ohtani during Tuesday night's Detroit TIgers - Los Angeles Angels game. Morris was asked what he would do if he were pitching to Ohtani and responded by saying, "be very, very careful," with an accent. Morris then apologized for his comment as Ohtani came up to the plate in the 9th inning. Here's video:

Just an unbelievable choice.

Morris, 66, is a Hall of Fame pitcher who spent 14 seasons with the Detroit Tigers. He has been working Tigers games for FOX Sports Detroit since 2015. Who knows what will happen next, but he's likely to step away from the booth for a bit.
