Hawk calls fi­nal game in White Sox booth

Calgary Herald - - SPORTS -

Long­time Chicago White Sox broad­caster Ken (Hawk) Har­rel­son worked his fi­nal game Sun­day, clos­ing out a colour­ful TV ca­reer af­ter three-plus decades in the booth. The 77-year-old Har­rel­son, who also played in the ma­jors for nine sea­sons with four teams and served as Chicago’s gen­eral man­ager for a short time, will be a team am­bas­sador for the 2019 sea­son. He isn’t sure about his plans be­yond that job. “At one point I wanted to die in the booth: ‘Here’s (Paul) Kon­erko at the plate. Here’s the pitch, bam, that ball hit deep, way back, you can put it on the board,’ and that would be it,” Har­rel­son said. “I want to be with the White Sox as long as I live.”
