An end of an era is upon us as Ken 'Hawk' Harrelson will be stepping down as a broadcaster for the Chicago White Sox.

Harrelson will broadcast his final game on Sunday, September 23 when the White Sox take on the Chicago Cubs at Guaranteed Rate field.

Harrelson and Cubs fans aren't on the best of terms with some of his remarks about Wrigley Field recently.

"Fenway is just a special place," Harrelson said. "Look at this ballpark. The only [visiting clubhouse] worse is Wrigley Field — the two worst clubhouses in baseball for visiting players. I’ll tell you this much: I’ll never go back to Wrigley Field again."

Harrelson continued to say that Wrigley Field is not welcoming for visiting teams.

"Worst press box, worst booths for television," Harrelson said in an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times. "It’s a joke; it really is. And so Jason is getting ready for those three at Wrigley. I will never step foot in that ballpark again. Ever."
