Happy Baseball Birthday...Ernie Harwell

Today we celebrate the 98th Happy Baseball Birthday! of legendary Detroit Tigers announcer Ernie Harwell.

To all of us young baseball fans who grew up listening on their transistor radios in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Ernie Harwell was our voice of all things Tigers baseball.

Ernie Harwell was everything that was great about baseball, and his love of baseball wS probably best embodied by his acceptance speech at the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1981 as the winner of the Ford C. Frick Award.

Happy Baseball Birthday Ernie!
