Jack Lessenberry and Flint area Detroit Tiger fans share their special memories of Ernie Harwell in this tribute podcast.

Award- winning journalist Jack Lessenberry, formerly of Michigan Public Radio, was a personal friend of Detroit Tiger broadcaster,

Ernie Harwell was a Michigan cultural icon. He has a special place in the hearts and memories of Tiger fans.

We invited Flint area fans to recount their favorite memories of Ernie.  Included on our guest list are"

  • Sue Meisner-Kelly a retired Flint Community Schools teacher,
  • Dave Cobb a Flushing resident and retired GM employee, and
  • Jeffrey Natchez a Flint area Optometrist who was drafted by the Detroit Tigers and played in their minor league system for a number of years.

Ten years ago in Ernie's final farewell to his fans he said, “I deeply appreciate the people of Michigan. I love their grit, I love the way they face life, I love the family values. And you Tiger fans are the greatest fans of all. No question about that.”.

Ernie Harwell may be gone but his legacy still lives in baseball fans everywhere especially in Flint and Detroit.
