R.I.P., Ernie Harwell
Legendary Detroit Tigers broadcaster Ernie Harwell, who called games for the baseball team for more than 40 years, has passed away in suburban Detroit at age 92. You don't have to be a Tigers diehard — or even much of a sports fan, for that matter — to harbor fond remembrances Harwell's easy-but-assured tones wafting out of your radio on warm summer evenings. In a metro Detroit that can speak with many voices, Harwell's is one that will resonate with many of us here, as well as with Tigers fans around the country and world, for a long time to come. Peace, Ernie.
