This post is about the Ford C. Frick award and the current ability for fans to add 3 worthwhile broadcasters to the official ballot this year.
Fan voting started for the 2010 Ford C. Frick Award, which is presented annually for excellence in baseball broadcasting. The people are speaking and they are letting us know which broadcasters deserve to be honored with legends like Mel Allen, Red Barber, Vin Scully and Jack Buck...Voting is only being done on Facebook. Go here.
From now through Dec. 31, 2009 at 5 p.m. EST, fans will choose three broadcasters to be placed on the final ballot. They and seven other finalists and will be voted on in January and the 2010 honoree will be announced in February.
If I may suggest some worthwhile names, please consider voting for Jerry Doggett, Don Drysdale, Al Downing and/or Ross Porter.
