    Nuxhall receives overwhelming majority of votes

    COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- A record 122,505 fan votes were cast online at www.baseballhall.org throughout November as fans chose three of 10 names to be listed on the ballot for the 2008 Ford C. Frick Award, given annually by the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum for excellence in baseball broadcasting.
    Joe Nuxhall (82,304 fan votes), Bill King (7,659) and Joe Morgan (6,065) earned spots on the ballot through the online vote, which took place exclusively at www.baseballhall.org, the online home of the Museum. The three fan selections will be joined by broadcasters Tom Cheek, Ken Coleman, Dizzy Dean, Tony Kubek, Graham McNamee, Dave Niehaus and Dave Van Horne, who were selected by a research committee from the Cooperstown-based museum.
    That means he received 67% of all the fan votes. That's amazing considering how many people were available to vote for. Good job all.

    Joe Morgan!
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."
