Detroit Tigers announcer Jack Morris is on suspension indefinitely and will undergo unconscious bias training at the same time the Asian American community is now responding to exactly what he said was showing Oh Tommy berry better Careful caliphal In a moment on Tuesday night that would leave countless Tigers fans extremely disappointed to try Tigers pitching legend and TV announcer Jack Morris,
he clearly heard mocking an Asian American accent. When asked about angels player Shohei Otani later in the broadcast. He apologised,
