This is a past event.


Ernie Harwell is, “'looong gone', but never forgotten." This Mitch Albom play is dedicated to Ernie Harwell, the late announcer of the Detroit Tigers. The play is set on Ernie Harwell’s last night at Comerica Park, where the Hall of Fame broadcaster plans to bid his farewell to the city. Before he walks onto the grassy field, he encounters a boy who coaxes Harwell into giving the “broadcast of his life.” The play made it's premier in April 2011, and returns every year to allow fans to hear the, “Voice of Summer,” once again. Ernie’s fifth anniversary season will feature the doubleheader experience, which allows fans to watch the play and catch a Tigers game in the same day. (To take advantage of the, “doubleheader,” and purchase discounted tickets, you must present your Ernie ticket stub at the Comerica Park Box Office.)
