A richly deserved honor for DVH. If you get a chance, be sure to check it out.

Joe Capozzi has a nice story on DVH.

Florida Marlins' voice Dave Van Horne well understands the magic of baseball on the radio

I too grew up listening to baseball on the radio, and there is nothing quite like it. It always brings a smile to my face remembering the nights that my Mom would in a raised voice tell me to turnoff the radio and go to sleep. Of course, I never did. The game wasn't over.

The problem with radio nowadays is that the young guys never give the score. I was listening to a Marlins broadcast on my way home from work, which takes about 20 minutes, and Glenn Geffner never gave the score. DVH being the consummate professional would have never done that.
