Now's Your Chance to Help Get Eric Nadel or Mark Holtz in the Baseball Hall of Fame
|Mark Holtz and Eric Nadel|
Reason I mention it: John Blake, Rangers spokesman, sends word that the National Baseball Hall of Fame today opened up online voting, asking fans to help whittle down the list of 75 contenders ("two representing every current big league team and 15 at-large selections") to the 10 finalists who'll end up on the ballot for the Ford C. Frick Award, so named for the legendary broadcaster and "driving force" behind the creation of the Hall of Fame. Notes Blake, "fans will select three of the 10 names on the ballot for the Frick Award."
Nadel, of course, made the finalists' list last year, only to lose out to Expos-Marlins caller Dave Van Horne. So. Go to the Hall of Fame's Facebook page, where you can vote once a day till September 30. Those guys, more than most, deserve to say hello to that particular win column.
