He Took His Cut, and Now 2 People Hope He Takes His Seat

One of the main reasons for birthday posts on BDPE is to give recognition to some people's picks that aren't necessarily in the news all that often. Therefore, we thought it best to spread out Ernie Harwell's birthday post from his "Alive and Loving It" post. What's that? We didn't do that for Paul Newman? Ummm well, oh hell. Just be happy that there's a birthday post on a day when there are no birthdays.

Friday was somebody's birthday! Whose Birthday? Former Detroit Tigers Broadcaster Ernie Harwell's Birthday. How Old Is He? 1,2,3,4... 90! And Never been Kissed By... Death

Ernie Harwell's name appears on "Grateful(ly) Dead's" and "M'h By You Buddy's" rosters

  • Harwell called Bobby Thompson's "Shot Heard 'Round the World" for NBC TV. His call of "It's gone!" was not preserved or recorded for posterity.

"It's Gone!"? Seriously, that was the best he could come up with?

... And Many More!
