Tonight, Ernie Harwell (the voice of the Detroit Tigers for many years) comes back to the ball park to say “Thank you” to his fans.

You see, Ernie’s been diagnosed with inoperable cancer and we’re going to lose him at some point in time.

This editorial by Tom Gage in today’s Detroit News sums up all of the thoughts I’ve got going through my head right now about Ernie.

Thank you too, Ernie.
