Tigers to remember Paul Carey pregame

The Tigers had just finished up their last homestand when Paul Carey passed away last week, so tonight will be their first home game since. Fittingly, they’ll remember the late broadcaster in a pregame ceremony slated to begin at 6:50 p.m.

As they did when Ernie Harwell, Carey’s broadcast partner for 18 years and colleague for over 20, passed away in 2009, the Tigers will raise a flag on the center-field flagpole with Carey’s initials. The flag will be flown there for the rest of the season.

Carey, part of Tigers radio broadcasts with Harwell from 1973 to 1991, passed away Tuesday night at age 88. Much like Harwell’s death seven years ago, the news hit home to Tigers fans who remember listening to the pair growing up. Carey was an unmistakable voice of Michigan summers, and an influential voice for many broadcasters in the game today.
