At the Tiger's game today, the actor who will be portraying Ernie Harwell in Mitch Albom's play, Ernie, threw out the first pitch. Shortly after, he took a moment to speak with In Play! about what it was like to portray Ernie Harwell.

"Frightening, daunting, thrilling," said Will Young, whose look and voice eerily resembles Harwell's. He went on to say, "What we're trying to do is just represent him and not mimic him at all."

Young went on to say he hopes people come out to see the play. The play premieres at the City Theatre on Thursday, April 28 and is scheduled to continue through June 26.
