Rick Monday Elected to SoCal Sports Broadcasters HOF

The Dodgers issued a press release this afternoon, stating that Rick Monday was elected to the Southern California Sports Broadcasters Hall of Fame today. Unsurprisingly, details and key statistics about the event were not mentioned:

LOS ANGELES – Rick Monday, who is entering his 15th season as a Dodger broadcaster and 22nd season overall with the organization, was inducted into the Southern California Sports Broadcasters Hall of Fame during the organization’s annual awards luncheon at Lakeside Golf Club earlier today.

The Emmy-Award winning broadcaster serves as an analyst on KABC 790 AM for all Dodger home games and the club’s road games against the National League West. In all other road games, Monday serves as the play-by-play announcer alongside former teammate Jerry Reuss.

The press release makes no mention of how many people were at the event, marking yet another event in which Monday was involved and no one knew the count.

Seriously, Rick, congratulations.

Well, it's not like he's going to get elected to the Guys Who Saved The Flag From On-Field Burning Incidents Hall Of Fame.

I'm sure Rick regaled the folks with tales of when he was a ballplayer.

Do they have a hall of fame for guys who don't tell score
