Vin Scully on Ernie Harwell



I can't really speak of Ernie Harwell's voice or legacy, but this brief, lovely eulogy, delivered by Vin Scully during last night's Dodgers game, two hours after news of Harwell's passing reached the West Coast, seems like a fitting tribute to the man whose voice was baseball for generations of Tigers fans.

UPDATE: Apparently, Major League Baseball considers Scully's on-air eulogy proprietary. They've taken down the clip from YouTube, which is disappointing, inappropriate and, from where I sit, shockingly petty.

Enjoy Vin as long as you can. He like Ernie are becoming extinct! It is truly a sad but happy time to be a Tiger fan! Thank you for posting this video.
