I'd like to think that his good friend and former Tiger's broadcaster Ernie Harwell was there to announce Sparky as he walked through the pearly gates. RIP Sparky...you will be missed.

Heaven has gained a Hall of Fame angel...
Detroit and the world has lost an amazing man. Sparky Anderson who coached our Detroit Tigers to become the 1984 World Champions sadly passed away yesterday. I had the great fortune to meet this gentleman (gentle and kind in every sense of the word) many years ago and it is an experience that I will never forget.
