Ernie Harwell has cancer

Ernie Harwell, the legendary voice of the Detroit Tigers, has incurable bile duct cancer. MLive has a complete story on their site.

My memories of Ernie are similar to many other Tigers fans. From those late nights listening to the radio in the living room, or hearing him call games as I did homework, Ernie's ability to call the game is unsurpassed.

I am saddened to hear of the diagnosis, but am always going to treasure those memories of him calling the games. Best of luck to you Ernie!

Go Tigers!
