Question of the Week

What is your favorite memory of legendary Tigers announcer Ernie Harwell?

Justin Hresko, senior, Flushing, Mich.
"I met Ernie Harwell 10 years ago. He represents old school baseball and knew so much about the greats and was able to put it in perspective for a young fan. He had a knowledge and aura around him that you automatically respected and will never forget."    

Gerry Rowlette, maintenance mechanic II, Zone Maintenance
"I remember hearing him on the radio when my dad was listening to the games back in the early ’60s. He is definitely the voice of the era."

Chad Thomas, lecturer I in English language and literature, LSA
"Listening to Ernie call games on warm summer nights while drinking cold beers is my favorite memory. His voice really is synonymous with Tigers Baseball."
