About The Book
Is Ernie Harwell one of the most beloved figures in baseball? In 1991 when the Detroit Tigers decided not to renew his contract, various Domino’s Pizza locations (also owned by the Tigers owner) received bomb threats. 72-year old Harwell had been the voice of the Tigers for over thirty years. Public outcry led the Tigers to rehire him. Harwell, a Hall of Fame broadcaster, was at the mike for Bobby Thompson’s Shot Heard ‘Round the World, Jackie Robinson’s second year with the Dodgers, and the Tigers’ World Championships of 1968 and 1984. And he’s the only broadcaster traded for a player!
Harwell’s life is more than just baseball. He interviewed golfing great Bobby Jones, and heavyweight champ Jack Dempsey. Gone With The Wind author Margaret Mitchell’s former paperboy, Harwell assisted Life magazine in its coverage of the film premier. This memoir, like its subject, is unique and unforgettable.
