His calling: Broadcast legend and Frick Award winner Felo Ramirez saw it all
“Well when they called me to tell me (of the induction) I thought it was one of my friends playing a prank because it was absolutely incredible. It was really great. It was the surprise of my life.” Ramírez said.
The Cuban native is a member of the Puerto Rican Baseball Hall of Fame and the Laredo Latin American International Sports Hall of Fame. Ramírez’s other honors include having the broadcast booth and a street outside Marlins Park in Miami named after him.
“I intensely live through baseball. Frankly, it is my life and I say all the time that I’d like to die next to the microphone, really, because I really adore it, because I love it.” Ramírez said.
