Jack Morris

morris 1 home Jack Morris, Chris Osgood, Cecil Fielder Confirmed For SportsFest 2012 Among Others
Morris played played in 18 big league seasons between 1977 and 1994, mainly for the Detroit Tigers, and won 254 games throughout his career. Armed with a fastball, slider, devastating splitter and a fierce competitive spirit, Morris was a five-time All-Star (1981, 1984, 1985, 1987, and 1991), and played on three World Championship teams (1984 Tigers, 1991 Twins, and 1992 Blue Jays). While he gave up the most hits, earned runs and home runs of any pitcher in the 1980s, he also started the most games, pitched the most innings and was the winningest pitcher of the decade.

Billy Sims

sims 1980 Jack Morris, Chris Osgood, Cecil Fielder Confirmed For SportsFest 2012 Among Others
Sims was the first overall pick in the 1980 NFL Draft. He spent his only five years in the NFL with the Detroit Lions, making the Pro Bowl in 1980, 1981, and 1982. Sims led Detroit to the playoffs in 1982 and 1983, but they would go on to lose in the first round in both appearances. The 1983 Wild Card Game was perhaps most disappointing. At Candlestick Park against the San Francisco 49ers, Sims ran for 114 yards on 20 carries, but Joe Montana would go on to lead the 49ers to a comeback victory, as Detroit kicker Eddie Murray missed a field goal in the waning moments.

Sims career would ultimately end midway through the 1984 season when he suffered a catastrophic knee injury in a game against the Minnesota Vikings. Sims finished his short professional career with 1131 carries for 5106 yards (4.5 yards per carry), and 186 receptions for 2072 yards (11.1 yards per catch). Sims remains a beloved former sports figure in Detroit. His number “20” would go on to be worn five years after his retirement by Barry Sanders, and is currently retired as an unofficial “Triumvirate” of the greatest Lions in the modern era to ever wear the number, which also includes Hall of Fame defensive back Lem Barney.

Chris Osgood

Osgood currently ranked tenth in wins in NHL regular season history with 401 career wins. He spent the first part of his 17-year NHL career with the Detroit Red Wings, then the New York Islanders and the St. Louis Blues before returning to Detroit in 2005. He won three Stanley Cup championships in his career, all with the Red Wings, with two of them coming while he was starting goaltender. He was known in Detroit by his nicknames “Ozzie,” chanted by the crowd after a big save, and “The Wizard of Oz.”

He was the last NHL goalie to wear a traditional player’s helmet/cage combo instead of the newer one piece goalie mask and probably will stay the last because he was grandfathered by the NHL.  He is also one of only nine goaltenders in NHL history to have scored a goal, and one of only five to have scored by shooting the puck directly into the opponent’s net (not an “own goal”), on March 6, 1996 vs. the Hartford Whalers.

Ted Lindsay

Lindsey is a former professional ice hockey player, a forward for the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Black Hawks of the National Hockey League. He scored over 800 points in his Hockey Hall of Fame career, won the Art Ross Trophy in 1950, and won the Stanley Cup four times. Often referred to as “Terrible Ted”, Lindsay helped to organize the National Hockey League Players’ Association  in the late 1950s, an action which led to his trade to Chicago.

In 2010, registered career single-season high 8.5 sacks, despite missing three games due to injury. It didn’t take long for Avril to prove himself as a pro during his rookie season as he quickly emerged as a regular contributor in the defensive end rotation. Among all rookie pass rushers in 2008, he finished tied for first with 5.0 sacks and was first with four forced fumbles. Avril ended his first season with 22 tackles, having played 15 games, including the final four as a starter.

  1. Brad says:

    Wait so no free autographs this year?????? What was wrong with the way it was ran the last two years???

    1. joe says:

      looks like it Brad. This “FREE” event will cost you $5 to park plus $10 if you want ANY autograph, with no guarentees you’ll even get the guy you want because they’re bringing back the lottery system again. EPIC FAIL in my book 971.

    2. Jeremy Brown says:

      They have to make it fair to all the kids that didn’t get autographs last year, because all the people that sell the things they get signed…plus if you have been to the last two, $10 is a small price to pay for such a worthy donation! For the people that are “waiting around all day” you should stay home! This is the best sport event in Michigan even if you don’t get sigs, you still have a great time. I bet not one of the people that are complaining have kids ( because all the kids we brought LOVED this) The kids could care less about the sigs. So please stay home don’t ruin a great day for TRUE sports fan’s that have kids….realllllllly you people are so ungreatfull!

      1. Stucki says:

        I enjoyed getting some Tigers stuf. Cheap and the whole family got some stuff. Hopefully 971 revises this auto policy.

    3. Jeanna Cooper says:

      I think donating $10 one time to a good cause is a great deal. Have you seen the prices these signers get at shows? Not too many (if any) are $10 or less.

  2. Chris says:

    Seriously LOL! Wow, again? 97.1 has yet to figure out how to run an autograph event. I can understand the $10 donation, but a “numbered” wristband? For what? To wait around all day and get a Darren Helm autograph? Does the ten dollar donation count for just one autograph, or for anyone that you want to get? This makes no sense, this is the third year for sportsfest and its clear they have put about as much thought in planning it as the first year, when you had to wait in a line to get a piece of paper for an autograph…..just to go stand in the actual line to get an autograph. So……what if you want Billy Sims? You have to have your number on the wristband be drawn to get him? No thank you, I was dumb enough to go to the last two sportsfest just to be dissapointed with the way things were run….they’re not getting me this year. Its nice to have an event like this but why put all the effort and money into it if you cant ever get it right?

  3. Tom says:

    Epic fail to raise money for charity? Even at $10 for all the autographs you can get (I know there is no guarantee for any specific autograph), I think it is a good deal. Plus, the student heart check seems like a good cause. If you don’t want to spend the money, you can still go to the event and enjoy all the team stuff for free.

  4. Bob says:

    Look, I will donate $50 to the charity if they want. Just guarantee me I don’t have to wait around for 6-8 hours to get the one or two guys I might want, only to tell me “sorry, it’s wristband, you don’t get who you want”. I mean, seriously. How many years does it take to figure this out? Hire DC Sports to run this for you. They actually know how to organize a signing. Somebody at 97.1 needs to figure out they’d raise ALOT more money for charity if they just upped the fee, posted times for signers and allowed you to just get in line. Limit each guy to a certain number of tickets if you want. But as it stands they are making this a gigantic waste of time.

    1. Bill says:

      My thoughts exactly. I would gladly pay a small fee and help out a charity. Standing around all day and not knowing who and if you’re going to get anyone is miserable.

  5. Bill says:

    They should just charge $10 per autograph per player and cap it at a number – say 200. First come, first served. Will make things run alot more smooth and this way you’re not standing in line forever and maybe not getting an autograph. Making people pay a few bucks will keep the lines down big time, plus its a donation for a good cause. This is just my 2 cents.

  6. bob says:

    I’m wondering if anyone from 97.1 reads these comments. If they do, it would be nice if they would clarify their “system”. I’m about 90% leaning toward not going because for the third year in a row, I can’t understand what their “system” and “rules” actually mean. If they would stop this nebulous “half explanation” of the rules and tell us clearly what a “numbered wristband for select signers” means, I could make a better decision. Heck, I am tempted to donate more than the $10 if they would just save me from wasting my day by clarify the rules. Otherwise, I just risk losing my whole Saturday. And you know what? I can write a check to any charity in 5 minutes without doing that! Come on 97.1, this doesn’t have to be so hard….I’ve seen some pretty dumb people who actually know how to put together a well run signing.

  7. Chris says:

    Wow couldnt have said it better guys. I would be more then willing to pay a few bucks to get the guys i want, this would raise much more money for their charity.

  8. Marty says:

    Good luck on getting an answer, Bob. I have read many posts on this web site and on the Facebook site posting numerous questions on many different things and I hardly see a response from anybody from 97.1. Doesn’t seem that they care much. I also agree with paying a set amount with each signer. I already have several autographs from most of these players and would like to obtain just a few, but I absolutely hate waiting in line just in hopes that you will be able to get it.

  9. TED says:

    I will be saving a couple hundred dollars by staying home from this event. Ten bucks an autograph is a great deal. Imagine how much more could be raised for charity by allowing fans to choose how many and which athlete’s autograph they obtain. All the events and features are nice, but let’s face it, most fans use these to pass the time between auto sessions.

    YOU BLEW IT AGAIN 97.1 ! !

  10. Bob says:

    Good point Ted. As discussed, they’d do so much better if they clarified their system, then stuck to it. The first year was a complete free for all. The people working the lines were clueless. I did not attend last year but heard it got better. now they go back to some different, undefined system.. It would be nice if somebody saw all these comments and figured it out. People leave so much money on the table by being stupid these days….Common sense would result in a much bigger payoff for this obviously worthwhile charity.

  11. D says:

    I think everyone is forgetting that this isn’t an autograph signing event. It’s a fan appreciation event where the autographs are only part of the whole thing. Plus they say a lottery for certain players only, which I’m guessing will be like 2 or 3 guys. So you pay your $10 and you can still get an autograph from almost everyone there. Correct me if I’m wrong, but 97.1 never billed this event as an autograph signing so I think everyone should just calm down. If you don’t like it, stay home… you’ll make it better for everyone else.

    1. Bob says:

      Have you been there before? It doesn’t exactly scream “wow, this is hours and hours of unending fun”. There isn’t a whole lot for the average person beyond the autographs. Sure, if you want to listen to them interview somebody on the radio show while there, that can be interesting for a few minutes. But If there weren’t any autographs, I don’t really know what the point would be in going. That’s pretty much the main attraction.

    2. Jeremy Brown says:

      I’m with ya D ( hope STEVE don’t go) Last year they raffled for “just” Berry which was great, because all these 20 year old’s with no kid’s couldn’t run them over just to get a sig! The first year NO kids got calvin’s sig. Because all these moron’s got there way early, then they would leave after. The people who really want to be there should be the one’s that get rewarded not all these big mouth punks! STAY HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      1. Steve says:

        ok jeremy brown, go stand in line and watch your vagina kid throw a ball through a target, moron……

  12. Brad says:

    I just want to know the rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Stucki says:

    I am a little bit concerned. If I pay $10, I am a Tiger fan and want Cecil or Morris ONLY! So, I’d pay the $10 and get shutout?!?!?

    1. Bob says:

      That’s the way it sounds. Unless 97.1 reads this and wants to clarify the rules.

      1. Stucki says:

        Solution: Give FOUR different bands – hockey, baseball, basketball and football. THAT way the ones you want are the ones you pay for. The charity is a good one at least.

      2. D says:

        Okk Bob since you’re so thick skulled….. the rules are already clear. You want any autograph, you pay a one time $10 donation. You get a wristband which signifies that you paid for autographs and you can get into any non-lottery line for a signature. You’re wristband also has a number on it for lottery signatures. 971 will choose the “high demand” autographs, which will probably only be a couple guys, and if you’re lucky enough your number will get picked. Think back when they had Barry…that dude would only sign a select number of autographs. so they had to do a lottery system. its the only fair way for them to “hand out” the limited number of autographs. im sure 971 would love to have these athletes around all day so everyone gets what they want but lets face it, they probably dont have enough $$ those athletes would expect for that kind of event.

        So look, you could go and spend $10 and walk away with several autographs so I don’t know what your complaining about. 971 is trying to make it as fair as possible and make it so that the normal guy has a good time. Im sure they could care less about satisfying all the crazy autograph hounds that are boo-hooing because 971 isnt just handing over the autograph that you want when you want it.

        Clear enough for you, Bobby?

  14. Steve says:

    D you’re an idiot, please do not throw in your two cents. Maybe next year 97.1 won’t have an autograph session and lets see how many people show up….probably just you.

    1. Shannon says:

      No Steve D is correct….. Its a Fan thing …. Steve hopefully I don’t see you there :)

      1. Jeremy Brown says:

        Steve is just one of them coward cry baby’s that hide behind the keyboard. I would LOVE to talk to ya STEVE. I’ll have a homicide hat on, i’ll be smoking a cig. from time to time come TALK!

  15. Bruce K says:

    CMon guys…. have a beer at the Labatts bar, and if your number is called, bonus, if not just chill, its all about the love of sports. If you want Morris you can pay $30+ or roll the dice… Im willing to take the chance.. Quit the whining, although its entertaining to read :-)

  16. Brad says:

    Im not confused, but D where did you see these rules posted. If this is your thought of what is going to happen, GREAT. But I don’t see it posted anywhere that you can get “several autographs” for your one time donation. I know in the past I have walked away with several from this event, but it sounds like things may be much different this year. I just don’t think that the “rules are clear” as you state in your post.

  17. hockeystcks says:

    from my understanding from a source that i know it is going to be somewhat like last year…with the names and times of players signing..the lottery wirst band is going to be for a special guest that is going to be posted soon..when i get more info i will past it on to u guys..

  18. Kevin says:

    Boys Boys Boys..settle down..its 2 weeks away ..and were fighting in a inaginary line….You can always pay 65 dolllars a autograph down at 12 oaks mall..you know who im talking about…come on..pay the 10 dollars the 5 dollars for parking and go walking around. have a good time. if you dont like people STAY HOME

    1. Jeanna Cooper says:

      I agree with you Kevin and I know who you’re talking about! The only thing is that last year I couldn’t spend any time “walking around” because I was in one line for hours. It’s really not fair to the dealers either that are there because I would have loved to look at their stuff. But after I got my autograph, I was so tired I said the heck with it, I’m going home. The dealers pay to be there and I would think that what keeps the price down, I did enjoy the bar (by that time I NEEDED a seat!) and enjoyed the walking around that I was able to do!

  19. Steve says:

    A homicide hat on? hahahaha…….smoking a cig? LOL!!!! Wow and let me guess….you’re 5foot 2inches tall….typical small man syndrome, when someone calls you out, you have to be confrontational…..hahahah you sound rediculous. Man UP pal, admit your short stature and get over all the kids that used to make fun of you in high school.

  20. Jeanna Cooper says:

    You mention Pistons, but I don’t see any Pistons on the list. Will there be any? (Before somebody jumps in and says the Pistons suck, please don’t bother!)

    1. John B says:

      Austin Daye has been added

  25. Jay says:

    I was just looking over the Autograph schedule and didn’t see Helms name on there. Is he not going to attend now?

  26. Dave says:

    Are these the only players that are coming to sign? Still waiting for the 1 big name to make me actually use my gas to drive there as I see none worth going for.

  27. Dave Omega says:

    Would rather spend $50 for Ray Bourque and $35 for Jimmy Howard at Gibraltar Trade Center on the same day.

  28. ARoD says:

    Can someone from 97.1 the ticket please comment and explain to everyone how this works

      1. Stucki says:

        Ju got back from Sportsfest, what a nightmare! Parking was horrible. No one seemed to know what was going on, don’t ask! Retool it for next year…MAJOR overhaul needs to be done.

  29. Kevin says:

    When you go to the sportsfest tomorrow…go their there with your list…..when you get out of the car leave the list in the car…be happy with what you get. if you get 1 autograph your ahead of the game.theres other ways of getting autographs during the year for nothing..for anyone..believe me ive been collecting for years…enjoy the show…i been looking forward to it all year….just being in a crowd of sports nuts who speak the same lingo…..thank you 97.1
