On Sunday the Chicago White Sox hosted the Chicago Cubs in the final game of what is known city-wide as the Crosstown Cup. The Cubs won the final game 6-1 at Guaranteed Rate Field and took the series by winning two games out of three. This rubber-match would also be the final game in the booth for legendary White Sox broadcaster Ken "Hawk" Harrelson. [VIDEO]

Baseball salutes Harrelson

Harrelson has been calling Sunday home games for the club for most of the 2018 MLB season. Over the past few years, he has depleted his schedule as the main voice of the White Sox television broadcasts, which led to the hiring of his successor --Chicago-raised Jason Benetti.

But now, Harrelson is ready to move into a new chapter of his life while leaving behind a fulfilling legacy: "I love you all, and I always will," Harrelson said, signing off during his final broadcast with longtime announcing partner Steve Stone at his side.

Both Chicago dugouts cleared after the game so players and coaches could raise their hats and point to the dugout to show their appreciation for the man wearing a pink, striped polo and pink, flat-brimmed White Sox hat.

Second-year manager Rick Renteria added after the game, "In a situation like this, when it's someone that's near and dear to everyone's heart -- he's been here a long time -- it was the right thing to do, to tip our cap to that guy..."

Harrelson was just another White Sox fan in the broadcast booth

Harrelson is well-known for his style of broadcasting.

He's owned catchphrases like "He gone" after a player strikes out, or "Stretch!" when a ball in the air may or may not become a home run. Most famously he's coined the phrase: "You can put it on the board... yes!" Almost every baseball broadcaster has their own unique home run call and south siders fans could hear Harrelson's like a replay track.

Harrelson retired from baseball in 1971 after playing seasons with the Kansas City Athletics, Washington Senators, Boston Red Sox, and Cleveland Indians. Following a stint in professional golf, he was hired to do broadcasts [VIDEO]for the Red Sox in 1975. He then went on to spend a year as the general manager of the White Sox, and then, he also went on to do broadcast work for the New York Yankees and NBC before returning to Chicago in 1990.

Ken "Hawk" Harrelson has been both a good guy and a bad guy over his three-plus decades in the booth, but he leaves as one of the last colorful voices in baseball.
