Longtime broadcaster Ernie Harwell, who spent 42 of his 55 years as a broadcaster calling Detroit Tigers games, has been diagnosed with an incurable cancer, several media outlets reported Thursday.



The 91-year-old Harwell, who was in the Tigers' broadcast booth from 1960 until he retired in 2002, remains upbeat after an inoperable tumor was found in the area of the bile duct.

Harwell tells the Detroit Free Press: "We don't know how long this lasts. It could be a year, it could be much less than a year, much less than a half a year. Who knows? Whatever's in store, I'm ready for a new adventure. That's the way I look at it."

Harwell was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1981 and the Sportscasters and Sportswriters Hall of Fame in 1989.

"Whatever's in store, I'm ready for a new adventure. That's the way I look at it."
Ernie Harwell

I've met Ernie several times, he's just as genuine and truly down to earth as he sounds on the air. A real great, great man. Very humble, very appreciative of all his supporters and I can't believe he's finally going to be leaving us. The game of baseball will never be the same.
