6. "Hang on to your Strohs, we'll be right back ..."
Ernie Harwell is Baseball. My dad & I listened to him every night (or day) there was a Tiger game. I made my own score pad to keep score.

Loved how he would personalize the game:
"High flying ball along the left base line. Foul! That ball was caught by a fella from Petosky, who's enjoying today's Tiger game with his sons & brother who hails from East Detroit. Looks like they're having a good time, too!"

Rest in peace, Ernie. I'll never, ever forget your voice, nor the love you had and gave for the Tigers.
:cry:
