Morris’ name and number joined the outfield wall at Comerica Park on Sunday.

The Detroit Tigers retired Jack Morris’ No. 47 on Sunday, just two weeks after Morris and former Tigers teammate Alan Trammell were enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Morris was honored with an on-field pregame ceremony, during which he sat in a No. 47 seat from Tigers Stadium.

Former teammates joined in the celebration, including Morris’ longtime catcher, Lance Parrish.

Morris himself gave a speech, thanking Tigers fans for all the years of support.

And finally, his name and number joined Comerica Park’s hallowed outfield wall.
