Harmon, Schroeder among finalists for Ford C. Frick Award
Former Milwaukee Braves and Brewers radio voice Merle Harmon and current Brewers television analyst Bill Schroeder are among 75 candidates for the Ford C. Frick Award which recognizes excellence in baseball broadcasting.
Two candidates from each major league city were selected by the National Baseball Hall of Fame. In addition, 15 at-large candidates were chosen to round out the field of 75.
To be eligible, candidates must have a minimum of 10 years of continuous Major League broadcast service with a ballclub, network, or a combination of the two.
Fans will be involved in determining 3 of the 10 finalists via online balloting. Fans can cast their votes once per day at www.facebook.com/baseballhall from Sept. 1-30.
Results of the fan voting will be announced on Oct. 5, and the Frick Award winner will be announced Dec. 6 during baseball's winter meetings.
