OK, so this is not a Television Detroit related item, but its a gem nonetheless.
Final inning of the 1984 AL Championship Series - KC Royals vs Detroit Tigers, Ernie Harwell calls the plays, Paul Cary goes in the clubhouse to do interviews with the victorious Tigers. Audio.
Sabathia v Hellickson
Here's a rare full game broadcast of legendary Detroit Tigers play-by-play men Ernie Harwell and George Kell, teamed together to bring fans the last game of the 1963 season. This was Kell's last game as a radio play-by-play announcer for the Tigers. George took a year off from the mic and then returned in 1965 for about 30 years as the lead guy from the Tigers' TV booth. Ernie went on from here to give Tigers' fans 30+ more years of folksy and professional radio play-by-play work that earned him a place in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. What these two fine gentlemen taught a couple of generations of Tigers fans not only about baseball but also about how to talk to people long will be appreciated.
Ernie Harwell and Paul Carey do the play-by-play for WJR 760, the Great Voice of the Great Lakes. The first13 innings of a 14-inning affair, eventually won by Detroit, 4-2.
Ernie Harwell and Paul Carey's last game together as Tigers broadcasters. Also, the last game played at Baltimore's Memorial Stadium. Plenty of hoopla, tributes, and reminiscences.
