Ernie Harwell was "The Voice of Summer" to those of us who grew up as Tigers fans. He was the broadcaster for the Detroit Tigers for years and years, and would make the game come alive before your eyes even if you were listening to the game on the radio. And apart from his talent for bringing the game to life, he was a man who lived his life in a way so that no matter who you talked to, they only had good things to say about him, and fond memories of time spent with him. Ernie died of cancer last May at the age of 92, and this week, a new play will open that pays tribute to Ernie and his legacy. Here's a link about it:

Oh, cool! I didn't know that was Mitch Albom's latest project.

I miss Ernie's voice during the summer. And from what I've heard, there was no finer gentleman.

I just emailed my dad this link....I hope he will consider going with a buddy of his! My dad met Ernie about 6 or 7 years ago---one of the finest moments of his life, I kid you not. And you're right Rob...my dad could not stop talking about what an amazing person he was. He treated my dad like an old friend. The framed picture of my dad and him is definitely one of his most prized possessions.


Thanks for sharing this Savannah!
