The Tigers have just finished their 2002 season and Iíve just finished my baseball broadcasting career, and itís time to say good-bye but I think good-byes are sad and Iíd much rather say hello. Hello to a new adventure. Iím not leaving folks, Iíll still be with you, living my life in Michigan, my home state, surrounded by family and friends. And rather than good-bye, please allow me to say thank you. Thank you for letting me be part of your family. Thank you for taking me with you to that cottage up north, to the beach, the picnic, your workplace, and your back yard. Thank you for sneaking your transistor under your pillow as you grew up loving the Tigers. Now I might have been a small part of your life, but youíve been a very large part of mine. And itís my privilege and honor to share with you the greatest game of all. Now God has a new adventure for me and Iím ready to move on. So I leave you with a deep sense of appreciation for your longtime loyalty and support. I thank you very much, and God bless all of you.
