Now, many of you know that I’m not a “baseball guy”. Honestly, if it’s not hockey, then I really don’t pay attention at all.
However, even I appreciate the legacy of Ernie Harwell, and so when an issue like this raises itself up to my attention, then I figure maybe it should be brought to yours as well.
Go read the article: “$4M in Harwell memorabilia put at risk by Detroit library“, and then follow sports reporter and 97.1FM The Ticket on-air personality Terry Foster’s advice – make a call to 313.481.1300 and schedule yourself an appointment to go check it out. Make them understand that a treasure like this should have room and budget made for it. This is part of Detroit’s heritage and history, and should be kept around.
It’s supposed to be raining like hell tomorrow anyway – make an appointment to go check it out. If not, go through the week. If not then, then go next weekend. Whenever you can get there, go.
