The hottest ticket in town (heck, even the state) tonight will be for the Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals game at 7:05pm. Not so much for the teams (even though Detroit is in the midst of a division race) either. Longtime Tigers radio broadcaster and Baseball Hall Of Fame legend Ernie Harwell is to be honored by the team tonight. Ernie Harwell recently revealed that he has incurable cancer and there has been an outpouring of love and support from fans both young and old. I think it's great (and long overdue) for the Tigers to pay tribute to a real gentleman. Emotions will be running high in the ballpark tonight.
