Today's a very special Happy Baseball Birthday! as we celebrate what would've been Ernie Harwell's 100th Birthday!
100 years ago today on January 25, 1918, William Earnest Harwell was born in the small town of Washington, Georgia.
We Tigers fans who were luck enough to have grown up listening to Ernie broadcast baseball games know how lucky we were to have the best announcer in baseball calling our teams ballgames.
We lost Ernie in 2010, but those who heard "foul ball back behind the 1st base line...and a great catch by a youngster from Kalamazoo!" will always have Ernie in our hearts and minds until we reunite with him in that big ball game in Heaven.
We LOVE YOU Ernie!
