Celebrating The Hawk
We are going to honor “The Hawk,” Ken Harrelson before tomorrow night’s game when we unveil a plaque naming the broadcast level at U.S. Cellular Field the “Hawk Harrelson Broadcast Level” of the ballpark. The honor is well deserved given Hawk’s long tenure calling White Sox games.
During his broadcast career, Harrelson has earned five Emmy awards, two “Illinois Sportscaster of the Year” awards, been selected as a finalist for Major League Baseball’s “Ford Frick Award” and been honored with the 2007 Lifetime Achievement Award at the annual Comcast SportsNet Awards dinner, benefitting March of Dimes.
On June 8, 2010, the White Sox celebrated “Hawk Harrelson Night” and presented Harrelson with a crystal microphone in honor of his years of service in the White Sox broadcasting booth.
Hawk was recently featured in Shore magazine. Read it here.
