Channel 7 Video Honoring Mark “The Bird” Fidrych

The fond memories of Mark Fidrych have been swirling around Detroit for the past week.  Never before or since has a player with such a short career touched the hearts and embedded the minds of so many fans.

It’s still hard to believe he’s gone.  All of this seems like a bad dream that we should all wake up from any minute.

This segment comes to us from Detroit’s WXYZ, Channel 7 Action News.  It is a well produced segment that adds a few new dimensions to the story — including a candid interview with Detroit Tigers legendary announcer, Ernie Harwell.
