Morris was one of MLB's most dominant starting pitchers during the 1980's. In a career that spanned 18 seasons (1977-94) he compiled a 254-186 record and was a 20-game winner three times. He was a 5-time All-Star, 4-time World Series champion and the winningest pitcher of the 1980's with 162 wins. Known as one of the best post-season pitchers in baseball history, he forever etched his name in baseball lore by pitching 10 shutout innings for Minnesota in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series.

"WFN is all about educating and entertaining anglers," said Chris Doyle, Vice President of Marketing for WFN. "We previously created everlasting memories for anglers inTexas with the chance to fish with former NFL great Jay Novacek and viewers in Minnesota the experience of wetting a line with former MLB great Kent Hrbek. He's a local sports legend and a passionate angler so we know any Michigan angler would love to spend a day with on the water."
