A gentleman wants to say "Thank you" - Mr. Ernie Harwell at Comerica Park Wednesday September 16th

Ernie Harwell Day September 2002

Ernie Harwell, the legendary baseball Hall of Fame broadcaster, and beloved by generations of Michiganders, will be attending Wednesdays Detroit Tigers vs Kansas City Royals game.

Last week Mr. Harwell announced that he has incurable bile duct cancer and the outpouring of love and support for this man has been ongoing.

Mr. Harwell wanted to come to Comerica Park to say "thank you" to all of the fans and the Detroit Tigers organization left the timing of their own tribute up to Mr. Harwell.

Understatement alert:   Comerica Park isn't large enough to hold all the people who want to say "thank you and God Bless you" to Mr. Harwell.   I have a feeling that when Mr. Harwell speaks the standing ovation and heartfelt shouts of  "thank you" to this man will go on for hours.

My husband, sons and I attended Ernie Harwell Day back in 2002, the year Mr. Harwell retired from the booth.  The outpouring of love that drizzly overcast day was unlike anything I have ever witnessed.  I haven't written anything about Mr. Harwell since he announced he is going to be "moving on to the next journey" of his life, because this has been so hard to comprehend.  When one grows up with someone as beautiful as Mr. Harwell it is more than just a bit difficult to convince your heart that he won't always be physically with us.

Mr. Harwell said in his announcement earlier "I'm not saying goodbye.  I'm still here."

I won't say it either Mr. Harwell.   I'll just say "God Bless and Thank You."

Heath,   He was the first man I slept with :-)))   (I used to fall asleep to his voice on my radio, tucked in to bed, listening quietly to him while he called the Tigers games :-)

Missy,  You bet.  Would be lovely to sit then and have a nice long chat.

Mike,  Thanks.  I know you adore him as much as I do.
