Default Hawk documentary coming to MLB Network

http://www.shermanreport.com/put-it-...k-documentary/
Will be narrated by Bob Costas. Won't be able to see it first-run on July 18, but hope it's rerun several times.

It better be a dramatization of his autobiography.

Ken Harrelson was one of the bad boy/counter culture baseball stars of the late 1960s. He introduced batting gloves and apparently clubhouse hairdryers to major league baseball. He irritated Charley Finley to the point where Finley simply released him before the Red Sox picked him up in their incredible 1967 run. He announced he was quitting the game at one point to pursue professional golf because he didn't like the fact that he had been traded to the Indians.

I had a book about the history of the Oakland A's (which I have since sold), and it gave an entire breakout page to Ken Harrelson, noting his contributions to the franchise and baseball, although the team jettisoned him before they left Kansas City.

I look forward to this documentary. Hawk has had an interesting career both as a player and a broadcaster. Ruffling feathers and being a polarizing figure everywhere he goes. I personally love Hawk but to many fans, he is public enemy #1. Anyone who elicits that type of emotion would make for an interesting documentary if done right.

I've always like Hawk. I'm looking forward to the special. I'm wondering if Jay Mariotti is going to be interviewed. Then again , I wonder if Hawk is going to be asked of his opinion of Mariotti. If you really think about Mariotti now I think it's easy to say that he's a has been.

My hope is that this is a sign that Hawk is getting ready to retire.
