We would like to congratulate Tom Cheek for entering the Baseball Hall of Fame posthumously for his work as the Toronto Blue Jays play by play announcer on radio. Cheek called the first 4,306 regular season game for Toronto and has the signature call of “Touch em all Joe! You’ll never hit a bigger home run in your life” when Jays’ outfielder, Joe Carter belted the home run that cemented Toronto’s second consecutive World Series in the mid 90’s. Cheek is the winner of the Ford Frick Award for Broadcasting Excellence. This award reminds us how much the Baseball Hall of Fame matters in the canon that is North American Sports.
