COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - Longtime Chicago baseball announcers Ken Harrelson and Pat Hughes are among the eight finalists for the Ford C. Frick Award that rewards broadcasting excellence.

The list was presented Monday by the baseball Hall of Fame. The winner will be announced Dec. 7 at the winter meetings and honored on July 29 during the Hall’s enshrinement weekend.

The other candidates are Gary Cohen, Jacques Doucet, Bill King, Mike Krukow, Ned Martin and Dewayne Staats. King and Martin are deceased.

Harrelson has spent the last 27 years doing White Sox games on television. Known as Hawk, he was an All-Star outfielder for Boston in 1968, when he led the majors with 109 RBIs.

Hughes has called Cubs games on radio for 21 seasons.

Doucet started with the Montreal Expos during their expansion season in 1969 and spent 34 years doing play-play on their French network.
