In addition, the Hall of Fame has recognized 32 broadcasters and 59 writers with its Frick and Spink awards.This extensively updated and revised edition provides essential information for every individual honored by or elected to the Hall of Fame, including the historic Class of 2006, which saw enshrinement of 17 previously overlooked greats from the Negro Leagues and pre - Negro Leagues.
