Ernie Harwell

I was saddened today to read the news of the death of Ernie Harwell. I spent countless hours listening to Ernie’s broadcasts of Detroit Tiger games beginning with a mediocre 1960 team but including the magical 1968 world champion season. Ernie’s voice provided many memories; like that 22-inning loss to the Yankees on June 24, 1962 and Denny McLain’s 31st win on September 19, 1968. Ernie and Jack Buck will always be my two favorite sports broadcasters.
