I was going to blog about getting injured last weekend and going on the disabled list this week, but that all changed last night when I heard about Ernie Harwell.

Before I played my first game with Detroit, I expected to hear a lot of questions about Tiger legends like Al Kaline, Ty Cobb and Willie Horton. But I soon learned when I got to Detroit that the legend I needed to meet was Ernie Harwell. He had a celebrity in the state of Michigan that was unrivaled by anyone and everyone wanted to know about him. Millions of people grew up listening to Ernie as the play-by-play man for the Tigers, and when you listen to them talk about him, you know that Ernie played an integral part in their youth. The next time you visit Comerica Park, notice that there’s a statue of Ernie inside the main gate. Enough said. for more

    Curtis is showing the same class that we were able to enjoy when he played for the Tigers. Get well soon!

    Definately a big Granderson fan, What a stand-up guy. Hate the Yankees, tho. They dont deserve him. Hope Granderson gets back in the game soon

    Thank you Curtis for your kind words! You were always a class act and you continue to show that class even though you are no longer here! You are the one, and probably only Yankee, that Detroiters hope will continue with a great career…and yes we miss ya!
