Rick Monday, Jaime Jarrin Honored With Broadcasting Awards

Jaime Jarrin, Rick Monday
While Vin Scully gets the most acclaim among the Los Angeles Dodgers broadcasters, there are a few other members in the booth that can hold their own.

Charley Steiner is a member of the National Radio Hall of Fame, Jaime Jarrin is a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame and Rick Monday has been in broadcasting since 1989. Also in the booth are former All-Stars Nomar Garciaparra and Orel Hershiser.

According to J.P. Hoornstra of the LA Daily News, the Dodger broadcasters are adding some hardware this year:

Jarrin pairs with Fernando Valenzuela to form the Spanish broadcasting duo for radio and television for the Dodgers. The Hall of Fame broadcaster has been with the Dodgers since 1958, being inducted in 1998 to join Scully. He’s won countless awards over that time period, and has won this award five times previously. Jarrin was inducted in the Southern California Sports Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame in 2003.

Monday does play-by-play alongside Garciaparra on the radio. He’s been with the Dodgers since 1993, after playing for them from 1977-1984. Monday is best known for stopping two protestors from burning the American flag on the field at Dodger Stadium as a member of the Chicago Cubs.

The Dodgers not only try to have the best team on the field, but also in the broadcasting booth.
