|The late Al Helfer has been named Ford C. Frick Award winner for broadcasting excellence, as announced last week. Helfer was a long-time radio broadcaster for several teams from the 1930s through '50s.
As noted in the linked article:
|This year's Frick Award candidates were on the "Broadcasting Beginnings" ballot, featuring those "whose main contributions were realized as broadcasting pioneers." |
Congratulations on this posthumous honor.
"The Dodgers have always occupied an enormous place in the history of the game. If the Yankees are the most successful team in baseball history, the Dodgers are the most essential. Their legacy is unique."
