Ernie is a theatrical production that has been written by the award winning author known as Mitch Albom. The play is a dedicated tribute to Detroit’s famous Ernie Harwell. The first time that this play made its world premiere debut was in April 2011 at the acclaimed City Theatre in Detroit, a venue that is just one block apart from the popular Comerica Park. The play of Mitch Albom is set on the last night that Ernie Harwell spent at Comerica Park. In that last night of his, the Hall of Fame Broadcaster is seen in the play as about to give a highly emotional gratitude filled speech to the city. Shortly before he walks onto the famous field, he comes across a rather unusual boy who is quite keen to know all about Harwell. The boy coaxes Harwell into letting him give the final broadcast which will be known as the broadcast of the boy’s life.
