Baseball suffered a loss on Tuesday when former Detroit Tigers broadcaster Ernie Harwell passed away at the age of 92.
Harwell broadcast baseball for 55 years, with the last 42 of them in Detroit with his beloved Tigers. Harwell also broadcast for the Atlanta Crackers, Brooklyn Dodgers, New York Giants, and Baltimore Orioles.
All of us at the Smokies Radio Network loved hearing Harwell broadcast games and we mourn his loss. We will feature a radio story on the Hall-of-Fame broadcaster during the Mobile series during the Pilot-Oscar Meyer Pregame Show.
