Mitch Albom's 'Ernie' coming to Detroit's City Theatre this spring

Baseball is in the air in Detroit as Opening Day draws near, and while we're not sure who's going to be playing second base for the Tigers, fans are excited about what will be playing across the street.

"Ernie", a play written by Mitch Albom about longtime Tigers broadcaster Ernie Harwell, will take the stage at the City Theatre in the rear of the Hockeytown Cafe building for a run that begins April 28.

It should make for a great build-your-own doubleheader, catching a matinee showing of the play before heading across the street to watch a Tigers game. In fact, while you're in the area, make it a triple play by swinging past the site of the old Tiger Stadium to see what fans have dubbed Ernie Harwell Park.
