Detroit Tigers color commentator Jack Morris apologized Tuesday after using a racist accent while discussing how the team should pitch to Los Angeles Angels superstar Shohei Ohtani.

In the top of the ninth inning of the Angels’ 8-2 win over Detroit, play-by-play announcer Matt Shepard asked Morris — a Hall of Fame pitcher and four-time World Series champion with the Tigers, Minnesota Twins and Toronto Blue Jays — how the Tigers should approach Ohtani’s next at-bat. Morris replied they should “be very, very careful” in an apparent Asian accent.
