For generations of Francophone Canadians, Jacques Doucet is the voice of summer. A pioneer who invented the French baseball lexicon, Doucet’s voice was the sound that brought baseball to life. Known as Canada’s Vin Scully, Doucet is once again up for consideration for enshrinement into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY.

Doucet has called over 5,000 professional games, written two books on the history of the Expos, and continues to be a supporter of the growth of baseball in Canada. Please vote for Jacques Doucet to be a finalist for the Frick Award. It is an honour that is both deserved and overdue.
