About The Event
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Jack Morris event has been cancelled!
We will reschedule and hope to announce the date soon!
Join us at Foley's for An Evening with Hall of Famer Jack Morris! Proceeds from the evening will benefit Crescent Cove, a place of respite for kids with cancer and their families.
It will be the first New York appearance for Morris since he was informed that he would be a 2018 Baseball Hall of Fame inductee in Cooperstown this summer. Morris will host a Q&A session, mingle with fans, and pose for pictures in an effort to help raise money for Crescent Cove.
Autographs $50 - Ball + Autograph $75.
Jack Morris debuted for the Detroit Tigers on July 26, 1977 and won 254 games, started the most games, and pitched the most innings of any pitcher during the 1980s. He posted a lifetime win–loss record of 254–18 with a career 3.90 ERA and 2,478 strikeouts. The right-hander also pitched a no-hitter on April 7, 1984, against the Chicago White Sox at Comiskey Park.
Armed with a fastball, slider, and forkball, Morris was a five-time All-Star and four-time World Series champion (1984 Tigers, 1991 Minnesota Twins, and 1992-93 Toronto Blue Jays). He was voted World Series MVP in 1991 when he turned in one of baseball’s all-time great post-season performances: a 10-inning shutout of the Atlanta Braves in Game 7 to bring Minnesota its first championship.
Since retiring as a player, Morris has worked as a broadcast color analyst for the Blue Jays, Twins, and Tigers and as an analyst for MLB broadcasts on Fox Sports 1. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame by the Modern Era portion of the Veterans Committee in December 2017 and will be inducted on Sunday, July 29, 2018.
Crescent Cove is one of only a handful of hospice homes built and designed just for children and their specific needs. The organization offers care and support to children and young adults with a shortened life-expectancy, and to the families who love them. In 2018, Crescent Cove is opening a children’s respite and hospice home in Brooklyn Center, MN, as a home to provide short, respite breaks for kids and young adults (ages 0-21 years) with life-threatening conditions and their families. The facility offers an option beyond the hospital or home environment for compassionate, end-of-life care.
Crescent Cove provides six bedrooms for respite stays and, as needed, a sacred place at the end-of-life. Along with therapy rooms and recreational space, a family suite will be available so that families may stay together while enjoying a temporary get-away from the constant demands of care giving. Nursing professionals, trained in pediatric palliative care, will be on-site to provide daily care, meals, pain and symptom control, and Crescent Cove has a network of therapists to engage kids through music, art, or pet therapy, healing touch, spiritual care and hydrotherapy.
Since opening our doors 14 years ago, Foley’s NY Pub & Restaurant has raised more than $400,000 for various charities and non-profits.
