Tigers announce they'll retire Jack Morris' number 47 in a pregame ceremony Aug. 12.
They'll retire Alan Trammell's number 3 on Aug. 26.

Is anyone else planning on attending the induction? I'm going with two friends. We haven't found a good place to stay yet. Anyone have any suggestions for any hotels?

“I never had a mound visit that did a damn bit of good… I told (pitching coach Roger Craig) that there was no reason to say anything when he came out, because I already knew. So the next time he came out, he just stood there. And I stood there, looking up in the air. Lance Parrish comes out and looks at us. Then Roger walks back to the dugout. Never said a word.” — Jack Morris, Hall of Fame pitcher, June 2017

My apartment is but a 1 hour drive to Cooperstown. I don't know if I will be out of town that weekend or not, but if not, I do intend on attending. My brother and nephew might be driving over from MI.

If I was you, I would look at hotels in Utica, NY area. It is under an hour drive. Or if you want, Verona, NY. Turning Stone Casino is in Verona and they have quite a few rooms. Still roughly 1-hour drive to Cooperstown.

Trammell’s Hall of Fame election accompanies his stature as one of baseball’s nicest guys.
