DETROIT -- The Tigers will retire the jersey numbers of newly elected Hall of Famers Alan Trammell and Jack Morris in separate ceremonies in August, the team announced on Thursday.

The Modern Era Baseball Committee voted in the former Tiger teammates last Sunday. They'll become the first pair of teammates to be inducted in the same year wearing the same cap since 1984. They'll join any inductees from the BBWAA ballot as part of the Baseball Hall of Fame's Inductions Weekend July 27-29 in Cooperstown.

Once Trammell and Morris are officially in, the Tigers will have their celebrations. No Tiger has worn Morris' No. 47 since his final year with the team in 1990, but the team will make it official with ceremonies prior to the Aug. 12 game against the Twins -- Morris' other prominent team -- at Comerica Park. Trammell's No. 3 will be retired in ceremonies prior to the Tigers' Aug. 26 game against the White Sox.

The Tigers are giving fans a chance to purchase tickets to both games as part of a four-game ticket package that includes Saturday games against the Red Sox on June 9 and the Indians on July 21. Included in the offer are Hall of Fame replica plaques for both new inductees. The four-game ticket packs start at $76, and will go on sale Monday at 9 a.m. ET at tigers.com/HOF.
