SAN DIEGO — Dick Enberg has won the Ford C. Frick Award for excellence in baseball broadcasting.

Baseball’s Hall of Fame made the announcement Wednesday at the winter meetings.

Enberg has been calling Major League Baseball games in Southern California for nearly 20 seasons, split by stints as one of the most recognizable voices on NBC and CBS.

Enberg, who turns 80 next month, is the 39th winner of the Frick Award. He will be honored during the Hall of Fame awards presentation on July 25 in Cooperstown, New York.

Famed for his call of “Oh my!” Enberg was the voice of the California Angels from 1968-78 before shifting to commentating on a national level.

He returned to baseball with the San Diego Padres in 2010.
