Virtual Voices of the Game: Hawk Harrelson
Join us for a virtual program with 2020 Ford C. Frick Award Winner Hawk Harrelson.
Harrelson, the voice of White Sox television for 33 years, left the broadcast booth following the 2018 season. After his playing career ended and an attempt playing professional golf, he began his broadcast career with seven seasons for the Red Sox from 1975-81 and two years with the Yankees from 1987-88.
A two-time Illinois Sportscaster of the Year and five-time Emmy Award winner, Harrelson was a big league first baseman/outfielder for nine seasons. After helping the Red Sox win the American League pennant in 1967, he came back the next season with 35 home runs with a major-league leading 109 RBI. Also spending time with the Kansas City Athletics, Cleveland Indians and Washington Senators, his time on the diamond ended in 1970 with a broken leg.
The Frick Award is presented annually to a broadcaster for "major contributions to baseball." The award, named after the late broadcaster, National League President, Commissioner, and Hall of Famer, has been presented annually since 1978.
