We have lost one of the legends of broadcasting. Ernie Harwell passed away today.
Some of my earliest memories of baseball are tied to the little transistor radio that I had in my bedroom. Ernie painted a word picture as he described the action. If you listen to the current Tiger's announcer, Dan Dickerson, you can hear a little Ernie in his style. Even though Ernie has not broadcast a game in a few years, I can still hear his voice in my head. I will miss him. Rest in peace Ernie.
