A bit of my childhood is gone. Longtime Detroit Tigers personality Ernie Harwell passed away yesterday. My dad and I would spend hours in our garage tucked away in the woods outside Ypsilanti, listening to Harwell call Tiger games with sidekick Paul Carey. Those times with my dad are some of my fondest memories of being a boy. Ernie, you will be missed. Thanks for so many great games.
