May 6, 2018 all-day

On May 6, 2010, from 7 a.m. until past midnight, more than 10,000 Detroit Tigers fans, some who waited more than eight hours in line at Comerica Park, paid their respects to the beloved broadcaster Ernie Harwell.

The open casket was placed near the ballpark’s life-sized statue of the Hall of Famer, depicting the announcer with a microphone in his hand, along with the inscription, “The Tigers’ broadcasting legend and masterful storyteller for 42 seasons.”
