Dewayne Staats finalist for HOF award

Dewayne Staats is one of ten finalists for the Ford C. Frick award from the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Staats has been the Rays' play-by-play guy since their inception in 1998, but he worked for the Astros from 1977-1984. He's also Dan Wheeler's father-in-law.

The Frick award is given to broadcasters by the Hall of Fame every year, and Milo Hamilton won the award in 1992.

More discriminating Astros fans would have noted Gene Elston was voted the Ford Frick award in 2006. It'll be a very cool induction weekend next year with Staats and Biggio both on hand.
