It’s easy to explain what Ernie Harwell meant to the everyday working man.
Ernie Harwell was the everyday working man.
He was also the guy who’d pull over and help you change your tire.
The type of gentleman you’d want to have stand up at your wedding… for those of you who get married and stuff like that.
Ernie Harwell was many things to many people, but no one can deny that Ernie Harwell was baseball.
Rest in peace, brother. Rest in peace.
