(TSX / STATS) -- Former Detroit Tigers stars Jack Morris and Alan Trammell were elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday by the entity's Modern Era Baseball committee in Orlando, Fla.

Morris, a pitcher, and Trammell, a shortstop, both failed to gain entry during their 15 years on the regular ballot. Morris gained two-thirds of the vote in 2012 -- his 13th time on the ballot -- but didn't receive the required 75 percent in either of his final two years.

In balloting by the 16-member Modern Era panel, with 12 votes needed for election, Morris got 14 votes and Trammell received 13. Ted Simmons, an eight-time All-Star catcher, just missed election to Cooperstown, getting 11 votes. Committee members were limited to voting to no more than four candidates.
