Ernie Harwell Statue at Comerica Park

Ernie Harwell was a legend in Detroit.  The announcer for the Detroit Tigers passed away 2 years ago. For 42 years he spoke to us via radio or television with his singular southern style. He would start the spring training broadcast with a reading from the Song of Solomon 2:11-12  "For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land." Today the Tigers begin their 112th season at home and Ernie's spirit permeates the ballpark. Go Tigers!
