Dick Enberg, the broadcasting play-by-play man for your San Diego Padres, was honored by the Baseball Hall of Fame in in Cooperstown, New York on Saturday with the Ford C. Frick Award.
Enberg, who has been calling games for the Padres since 2009, has had a long career calling various sports for networks such as NBC, CBS and ESPN that includes calling 42 years in the NFL, 28 Wimbledons, 15 NCAA men’s basketball championships, 10 Super Bowls, nine Rose Bowls, four Olympic games, three heavyweight boxing championships, the NBA playoffs, and the World Series.
It has been a treasure to have an experienced voice like Enberg calling, with Mark Grant, some pretty terrible Padres seasons. Hopefully, the Pads will be able to put something together before Enberg retires. I think calling a Padres World Series would be the perfect way to go out.
Congratulations, Mr. Enberg!
