Tom Hamilton Honored With Award

In today’s edition of Clevelinks, we take a look at a laundry list of things going on with the Cleveland Indians. Even though they have been quiet on the free agent front, that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been a lot to talk about. We’ll start things off with the voice of the Cleveland Indians, Tom Hamilton. Hamilton was awarded the Ohio Sportscaster of the Year award for the sixth time in his illustrious career. It’s just one of the many Clevelinks for January 12th.

  • The National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association honored Tom Hamilton this week with the Ohio Sportscaster of the Year award. This is the sixth time Hamilton has won the award and was extremely honored. While Hamilton is one of the most easily recognizable radio play-by-play man in the country in any sport, it also helps that the Indians gave him so many exciting moments to give his patented calls to this season. From the staff here at Wahoo’s on First, Congratulations Tom Hamilton.
