Longtime Cubs radio voice, Pat Hughes, wins major Hall of Fame Award
Chicago Cubs play-by-play announcer Pat Hughes has been named the 2023 Ford C. Frick Award winner by the Baseball Hall of Fame. This comes after he was nominated for the award in 2016 and 2020.
Hughes, whom the Cubs elected to their personal Hall of Fame this past summer, has been behind the mic on Cubs radio since 1996 as part of an over 40-year career.
“No one is more deserving of this award than Pat. Outside of his impressive resume, Pat is a truly wonderful person who cares deeply about Cubs fans and the game of baseball,” chairman Tom Ricketts said in a statement. “We’re so incredibly lucky to have had him as a member of the Cubs family for the past 27 seasons and look forward to celebrating this accomplishment, and many more, in the years to come.”
Hughes joins Jack Brickhouse (1983) and Harry Caray (1989) on the Cubs’ list of Frick Award winners.
Heading into his 28th season in the booth for Chicago, the 67-year-old Hughes will be honored during the Hall of Fame weekend ceremonies on July 21-24 in Cooperstown, New York.
