Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Many listeners know Ernie Harwell, the longtime Hall of Fame radio announcer for the Detroit Tigers, as one of the smoothest and wisest voices in baseball. Oddly enough, in 1991 Tiger management unceremoniously decided not to renew Harwell's contract. After great fan protest, this decision was ultimately overturned. Find out what the fuss is about in this easy-to-read tale, which should be purchased by all libraries serving Tiger fans and indeed by serious baseball collections nationwide.
