William Earnest "Ernie" Harwell was born on January 25, 1918, in Washington, Georgia.
Ernie Harwell called big league baseball games for 55 years, 42 of those calling games of my beloved Detroit Tigers.
Ernie passed away almost 5 years ago now, on May 4, 2010, at the age of 92.
It's late, almost midnight here in Jacksonville, and I wanted to make sure I got Ernie's #HappyBaseballBirthday posted.
"...there's a pop foul out of play down the 3rd Base line...and a fine catch by a young fan from Kalamazoo. "
Happy Birthday Ernie!
