A while back I read this exhaustive account of baseball broadcasters by Curt Smith called Voices of the Game. While well-documented, it was also frustrating to read because all I really wanted to do was sit and listen to the announcers he was writing about. Kind of like reading a book about music.
I felt this way again yesterday, when poring through the numerous accounts of Ernie Harwell’s passing. Then I stumbled upon this touching little gem of a video, and thought I would share. It’s less than four minutes long, but says more about the man, his team and their stadium than you could ever ask for.
