Nuxhall not on Ford C. Frick ballot

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - For the first time in three years, legendary Reds broadcaster Joe Nuxhall will not be on the ballot for the Ford C. Frick award.

The award is given every year to honor a baseball broadcasting legend.

Fans have the opportunity to vote for three candidates. For the past two years, fans have voted for Nuxhall, but this year he fell short. Tom Cheek, Bill King and Jacques Doucet received the most votes and will be on the ballot.

Cheek, King and Doucet will be placed on the ballot for the 2011 Frick Award, along with seven other legendary baseball broadcasters. The complete ballot will be announced in the coming weeks. The winner of the 2011 Frick Award will be announced at Baseball's Winter Meetings Dec. 5-8 in Orlando, Fla.
