Longtime White Sox broadcast announcer, Ken "Hawk" Harrelson, isn’t planning on leaving the game of baseball anytime soon.

Hawk joined a teleconference with White Sox season ticket holders Thursday and one of the topics that came up was his future as the team’s broadcast announcer.

“I’ve got a couple more years on my contract and I love it now more than I ever have,” Hawk said. “I’ve been in this game for about seven decades and the one thing I know, the longer I’m in baseball, the more I love it.”

The former first basemen and right fielder explained that he will always love the game because you never know what to expect.

“Anybody that tells you they know the game of baseball, they are full of it,” Hawk said. “We saw things this year that we’ve never seen before.”

Hawk also shared his thoughts on how he would like his career to end.

“If I could write my own script to the end of my career, I would die in the booth at U.S. Cellular Field,” Hawk said. “I love this game and I love the White Sox.”
