Mark Simon takes a look at the career of legendary Detroit broadcaster and lyricist Ernie Harwell.
I missed his "Living Legends" broadcast on ESPN, but reader Miguel Ordorica had this to say:
Ok, so there was a lot of gratuitous backslapping, but also some interesting stories, an even handed approach, and no bashing of modern players.. Can you imagine Joe Morgan saying "People have been saying the bunt is a lost art since the forties.. I think today's players are just as good as those back then" and "Today's players make catches and hit balls further than I have ever seen". (Both are paraphrases, but you get the idea. Therefore, I would like to formally nominate Ernie Harwell as the 'anti-Joe Morgan"..
