Ernie Harwell, 1918-2010

"Whatever happens, I'm ready to face it," Harwell told The Associated Press on Sept. 4, 2009. "I have a great faith in God and Jesus."
Rest in peace, Ernie. Not many people hold a cherished spot in the memories of thousands and thousands of total strangers, but for me and so many others, you will always be the voice of baseball.

When ever I think of Ernie Harwell I remember falling asleep listening to games on a portable radio in summer evenings when we were temporarily staying in a little house the Scholands had lent us while waiting for our new house to finish being built.

That summer holds most of my best memories of baseball.

Yup, those are my best Ernie memories too.
