Ford Frick Award
This excellence in baseball broadcasting award was first given in 1978 to recognize the broadcaster for his or her major contributions to baseball via the broadcast booth. The Ford Frick Award winners are selected by a committee of baseball executives and media personnel and the trophy is given during the annual induction ceremonies at the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
The winners of the Ford Frick Award are not truly "members" of the hall of fame. Their names are inscribed on an exhibit called "Scribes and Mikemen" outside of the main library at the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Nothing to see here. Please disperse.
Wow, I was never aware of that distinction. So when he's referred to as a HOFer, that's actually wrong? Petty distinction, I guess, but interesting.
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
