Ernie Harwell Passes Away at 92

Tigers great and hall of fame broadcaster Ernie Harwell passed away on Tuesday. Harwell, who late last summer was diagnosed with incurable cancer, was 92 years old.

Condolences from the entire TigsTown staff go out to the Harwell family, including his wife LuLu, for their loss.

There is so much to say about Ernie, but because we all got to know Ernie so well by letting him do the talking in his 42 years as the voice of the Tigers, it's only fitting that we say goodbye with him doing the talking as well. Below is the link to Ernie's farewell address from last fall, when he addressed the Tigers' faithful, one last time.

RIP Ernie, you may be missed, but you'll always be remembered.
