Ernie would always read this small passage before the first spring training game, but it is just as fitting on opening day!

I have a friend who is from the Detroit Area, (Warren to be exact) who goes to Opening Day every year. And has never watched an inning of Opening Day actually INSIDE the ballpark. He goes, but celebrates in his own interesting way....

So to celebrate, here's Ernie Harwell reciting "The Voice of the Turtle"...Royals and Tigers, 3:05pm on FSD and online at the Tigers website UPDATE! Also watch the game in the Pepsi Stadium Club @ 5th 3rd Ballpark today! Game starts at 3:00 pm and the doors open at 1:00 pm!
