Ernie Harwell’s Farewell

“Thank you very much. We don’t want to be penalized for the delay of the game. But I do want to express my feelings here.

“It’s a wonderful night for me. I really feel lucky to be here. And I want to thank you for that warm welcome.

“I want to express my deep appreciation to Mike Ilitch, Dave Dombrowski and the Tigers for that video salute, and also for the many great things they’ve done for me and my family throughout my career here with the Tigers.

“In my almost 92 years on this Earth, the good Lord has blessed me with a great journey, and the blessed part of that journey is it’s going to end here in the great state of Michigan.

“I deeply appreciate the great people of Michigan, I love their grit and I love the way they face life. I love the family values they have.

“And you Tiger fans are the greatest fans of all. No question about that.

“And I certainly want to thank you from the depth of my heart, for your devotion, your support, your loyalty and your love. Thank you very much and God bless you.”
