"Ernie Harwell is not only one of baseball's great announcers, but also one of its great men. This memoir chronicles his beginnings as an announcer back in the 30s all the way to the contemporary Detroit Tiger teams he now covers. Tiger fans wil get the most out of it, but the book is filled with "stuff you didn't know" about the great NY and Brooklyn teams in the 50s, as well as stories about many of baseball's notable figures over the last half-century. Written in a warm, home-spun style, this is one volume "purist" baseball fans will want to go out and get."

William Earnest Harwell¬†(January 25, 1918 ‚Äď May 4, 2010) was an¬†American¬†sportscaster, known for his long career calling¬†play-by-play¬†of¬†Major League Baseball¬†games. For 55 seasons, 42 of them with the¬†Detroit Tigers, Harwell called the action on¬†radio¬†and/or¬†television. In January 2009, the¬†American Sportscasters Association¬†ranked Harwell 16th on its list of Top 50 Sportscasters of All Time.[1]

Ernie Harwell grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, working in his youth as a paperboy for the Atlanta Georgian; one of his customers was writer Margaret Mitchell. An avid baseball fan from an early age, Harwell became visiting batboy for the Atlanta Crackers of the Southern Association at the age of five, and never had to buy a ticket to get into a baseball game again. At sixteen he began working as a regional correspondent for The Sporting News.

Harwell attended Emory University, where he was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity and helped edit The Emory Wheel. After graduating, Harwell worked as a copy editor and sportswriter for the Atlanta Constitution. In 1943, he began announcing games for the Crackers on WSB radio, after which he served four years in the United States Marine Corps. Harwell would leave the service in January 1946 as a sergeant. During his enlistment he was stationed in Camp Lejeune as a writer for The Globe base newspaper, and later in Washington, D.C. as a writer for Leatherneck magazine.[2]
