GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Mitch Albom's play about Hall of Fame Tigers broadcaster Ernie Harwell will run for two weeks as a fundraiser for Hospice of Michigan at the Wealthy Theatre in September.
Set on his last night at Comerica Park, Harwell encounters an unusual boy who is eager to know all about him, coaxing Harwell into giving one final broadcast – the "broadcast of his life." The play opened in April 2011 in Detroit.
Beginning September 12, "Ernie" will be a fundraiser for Hospice of Michigan's Open Access program, which provides care to those who need help.
24 Hour News 8's Jack Doles spoke with Mitch Albom and will have more information later in the day.
