LOOOOOOONG GONE! R.I.P. Ernie Harwell
Ernie Harwell, the longtime voice of the Detroit Tigers, died Tuesday at his home in Novi, Michigan. He was 92. Harwell -- who also had stints with the Brooklyn Dodgers, New York Giants and Baltimore Orioles -- was diagnosed with terminal cancer in September 2009. A few days later, he said goodbye to the fans in a special tribute at Comerica Park. He was scheduled to receive the Vin Scully Lifetime Achievement Award today in New York.
