Seattle Mariners' longtime baseball announcer Dave Niehaus has been voted the Ford Frick Award for this year and will get a spot at the baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.

Meanwhile here is the glum reaction in Toronto where Tom Cheek has been denied again. Look on the bright side, though. Now that Niehaus is in, I think Cheek is a shoo-in to get into the Hall of Fame next year. Cheek keeps on getting on the Hall of Fame ballot every year. They'll have to vote him in one of these days. Now that Niehaus and Denny Matthews (KC Royals) are in the Hall , there's less competition for the honor and less reason for people to vote to keep Cheek out.
