Quebec baseball legend Jacques Doucet is one of ten finalists for the Ford C. Frick Award, presented annually by the Hall of Fame.
This honor is given to an individual who has distinguished himself in the context of television or radio coverage of baseball games.
In addition to Doucet, who covered Montreal Expos games on radio from 1972 to 2004, other successful candidates included Dave Campbell, Joe Castiglione, Gary Cohen, Tom Hamilton, Jerry Howarth, Pat Hughes, Ernie Johnson Sr., Duane Kuiper and Steve Stone.
The winner of the prestigious award will be announced at the Major League Baseball Winter Games next December in San Diego.
A related ceremony will be held in Cooperstown on July 22, 2023, as part of the festivities honoring new members of the Temple.
Doucet (82) recently described his last career game on television. In 2020, he was inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall.
“It was a great adventure, I had a lot of fun, but it’s time to go home and rest. As they say, I think I’ve given the office enough,” he later said Voice of the East.
