CHEEK BACK ON HALL OF FAME BALLOT

Noticed that once again the late Blue Jays broadcaster Tom Cheek was placed on the ballot for the Ford Frick Award and a spot at Baseball's Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.

He'll be competing with nine other guys and quite frankly, isn't it time he got in? How many times do they have to put him on the ballot before he gets in? This is the fourth year in a row now, and this should do it, finally, I hope. Unless they give it to Seattle's Dave Niehaus, who also keeps on getting on the ballot.

By the way there are THREE baseball announcers with Canadian connections on the ballot. Tony Kubek did the color for the Blue Jays games throughout the 1980s and Dave Van Horne did the Expos games for the longest time.
