Cubs Fact:

Seven members of the Chicago media have won the National Baseball Hall of Fame's Ford C. Frick Award for "excellence in broadcasting": Bob Elson, Russ Hodges, Jack Brickhouse, Harry Caray, Milo Hamilton, Jimmy Dudley, and Gene Elston.

Always loved Vince Lloyd and Lloyd Pettit and Lou Boudreau. Listening to these anouncers, along with Brickhouse put the love of Cubs in my heart.
