LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Chicago White Sox broadcaster Ken "Hawk" Harrelson will have to wait another day for enshrinement to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Harrelson was a finalist for the Ford C. Frick Award that recognizes broadcasting excellence, the second time he was so honored. The award, and the Hall of Fame enshrinement that goes with it, went to the Texas Rangers' Eric Nadel.

The 1968 American League player of the year, Harrelson just completed his 29th season in the White Sox's television booth. It was his fifth season with broadcast partner Steve Stone.

The first time Harrelson was nominated for the Ford C. Frick Award was in 2007, with the honor eventually going to the Kansas City Royals' Denny Matthews. The 72-year-old is a five-time Emmy Award winner and has been named Illinois Sportscaster of the Year twice.
