A few of us were talking about longtime Detroit Tigers' PxP announcer Ernie Harwell. Some said they hadn't had the pleasure of hearing him much- if at all.
Give a listen to Ernie's 1981 HOF Induction Speech - recited from memory - for Bob Costas last November. I tear up every time I hear it. It is the essence of the game we all love.
(The only thing I'd ever change about it is to make it more inclusive for women...)
