This may be correct (it doesn't list broadcasters on the HOF site) and I will into it to get you credit, but it was not what I was looking for...

From the baseball library web site:

Red Barber is not a member of the hall of fame, but the recipients of the Ford C. Frick Award do have an exhibit called 'Scribes & Mike-Men' at Cooperstown.

He was born in Mississippi though....

You're right. Winners of the Frick award are not technically recognized "inductees" in the HOF.

However Cool Papa Bell is an inductee and he was born in Mississippi.<br><br><span class=gensmall>Accepted as answer by dinocam on Tue Jun 03, 2003 9:00 am EST.</span>
