LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Texas Rangers announcer Eric Nadel has won the Ford C. Frick Award for excellence in baseball broadcasting.

The award was announced by the baseball Hall of Fame on Wednesday at the winter meetings.

Nadel has been with Texas for the past 35 years. For the last 19, he has been the lead voice on Rangers radio broadcasts.

The 62-year-old Nadel called Nolan Ryan’s 5,000th career strikeout on Aug. 22, 1989, and was on air for the Rangers’ six playoff berths and two American League pennants. His signature home run call, “That ball is history!” is part of Rangers lore.

Nadel will be honored during the Hall of Fame awards presentation July 26 in Cooperstown, N.Y.
