Wayne State University baseball field to be named after Harwells

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Wayne State University is planning to name its renovated baseball venue Ernie and Lulu Harwell Field after the late legendary Tigers announcer and his wife.

University officials say the first phase of the project will begin next spring and should be completed by the fall.  The renovations will include an announcer's booth and permanent seating which will resemble Ebbets Field, the home of the former Brooklyn Dodgers and where Harwell began his Major League Baseball broadcasting career.

Harwell was the Tigers play-by-play announcer for 42 years and died in 2010 at the age of 92.
