2010s / Ernie Harwell Dies
The Detroit Tigers say longtime broadcaster Ernie Harwell has died today (May 4, 2010). He was 92. Harwell called Tigers games for more than four decades and was one of Michigan's most beloved sports figures. Spokesman Brian Britten said Tuesday that the team learned about Harwell's death from his agent. Harwell announced in September 2009 that he had been diagnosed with inoperable cancer of the bile duct. Harwell started with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1948 and continued with the New York Giants and Baltimore Orioles before joining the Tigers in 1960. The Baseball Hall of Fame honored Harwell in 1981 with the Ford C. Frick Award, given annually to a broadcaster for major contributions to baseball. The Detroit Free Press said Harwell died at his home in Novi, Michigan.
