Re: Ernie Harwell, R.I.P.

As a Yankees fan born in the Reagan administration, I heard only a handful of Harwell broadcasts, but they were enough.

Yankeees play-by-play announcer Michael Kay offered a makeshift eulogy during tonight’s Yankees-Orioles broadcast, and he said something that cut right to the core of me. Ernie Harwell, Kay said, was the voice of summer.

Long live summer.
