Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"But it was after his career as a player that Ernie's biggest contribution would be made. After a brief stint in the Braves' front office in the early sixties, Ernie became a part of the broadcast team. Atlanta Journal columnist Ron Hudspeth once wrote, 'with his soothing voice and over-the-back-fence delivery, Ernie Johnson is as comfortable as an old shoe.'" - Author Bob Klapisch in The Braves: An Illustrated History of America's Team (Bob Klapisch and Pete Van Wieren, Turner Publishing, 11/1995)
