MLB Network To Air Documentary On Ken ‘The Hawk’ Harrelson

In a new documentary titled Hawk: The Colorful Life of Ken Harrelson, MLB Network will dive deep into the life of the famed player-turned-broadcaster, who is celebrating his 50th year in Major League Baseball.

Airing Thursday, July 18 at 6:00 p.m. CT, the hour-long documentary, narrated by Bob Costas, will feature Hawk telling stories of what “Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams thought of each other’s playing ability; his friendship with Mickey Mantle; meeting Hall of Fame NFL coach Vince Lombardi; and being encouraged to pursue professional golf by Jack Nicklaus,” a press release on the film states.

Hawk even explains why he never became a manager.

“I turned down three manager’s jobs and that’s the reason I turned them down: because my temper is not conducive to being a good manager at all,” he said.
