Rock The Vote…for Hammy
“HOW ABOUT THAT!” Tribe fans – the National Baseball Hall of Fame announced this week that Tom Hamilton, “The Voice of the Indians,” is one of 41 broadcasters to advance to the second round of voting for the 2013 Ford C. Frick Award thanks to your balloting efforts on the Hall’s Facebook page. Hammy still needs your help to get into the final round though, as the top 3 vote-getters will be placed on a ballot with 7 other finalists chosen by a Cooperstown-sanctioned committee. The 2013 Frick Award honoree will then be selected by a 21-member electorate and announced at baseball’s Winter Meetings in Nashville, Tennessee in early December. Presented annually since 1978 for excellence in baseball broadcasting, the Ford C. Frick Award is given to an active or retired broadcaster with a minimum of 10 years of continuous major league broadcast service with a ball club, network, or a combination of the two.
