Remembering sportscaster Ernie Harwell

The World

We look back at the long career of William Earnest “Ernie” Harwell (January 25, 1918 ? May 4, 2010). Harwell was a sportscaster best known for his long run with the Detroit Tigers, announcing the baseball games on radio and television. He broadcast for the Brooklyn Dodgers, the New York Giants and the Baltimore Orioles, but he found a permanent home with the Tigers and won love from Tigers’s fans. He died Tuesday at age 92.
