Today marks the Detroit Tigers‘ Grapefruit League opener for the 2020 season. This, of course, means that it is time for the late, great Ernie Harwell to give us his rendition of “Voice of the Turtle.”
For, lo, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone
The flowers appear on the Earth
The time of the singing of birds is come
And the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.
The Tigers will face off against the Philadelphia Phillies today in Lakeland, Florida at 1:05 p.m. and can be heard on WXYT-FM (97.1).
