Good Night, Ernie.

Ernie Harwell, the long time voice of the Detroit Tigers, passed away last night (5/4) at the age of 92. Every spring training, he would begin the first broadcast from Florida with these words:

For, see, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.

-Song of Solomon 2:11-12

Good night, Ernie. We will all miss you.
