Legendary Detroit Tigers Broadcaster Ernie Harwell Dies at 92

"For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land." Song of Solomon ii:11-12, read by Ernie Harwell at start of every final spring training game.

Mr. Harwell died yesterday at 92, after a yearlong bout with cancer.  To best understand Ernie, listen to his Hall of Fame Induction Day Speech (August 2, 1981), here.
