Farewell Mr. Harwell

A class act and he'll be sorely missed.
I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

"He conveyed warmth through a relaxed and humorous style that mixed the precise details of the game, player anecdotes, tales about his wife, Lulu, and idiosyncratic phrases that defined him to millions of listeners.
A player retired on a called third strike “stood there like the house by the side of the road” or was “called out for excessive window shopping.” A double play was “two for the price of one.” A foul ball that reached the stands was caught by “a man from Saginaw” or any other city or town that came to mind at the moment."
Heard on the news this morning he's being honored tonight by Fordham University's radio station, along with CBS's Bob Schieffer.

Ernie was simply great.
I listened to him almost every day as a kid.
He was a big part of my childhood memories.
Baseball will never be quite the same.

I also saw a quote yesterday from Jon Miller, he said Ernie Harwell told him "On TV, you get the 'movie verson'. Radio is the Novel".
While my youth was spent listening to other radio announcers... it's sad to have another one of the greats taken from us.
