CHICAGO -- Ken "Hawk" Harrelson, Ed Farmer and Steve Stone are the White Sox representatives on the fan ballot to select three finalists for the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum's 2012 Ford C. Frick Award for excellence in baseball broadcasting.

Fans can cast votes at the Hall of Fame's Facebook page, marking the ninth consecutive year fans will select three of the 10 names on the ballot for the Frick Award. Voting runs from Sept. 1 through Sept. 30, and fans can vote once per day.

Results of the fan voting will be announced on Oct. 5. The final 2012 Frick Award ballot will be comprised of the three fan selections, along with seven other candidates, determined by a Hall of Fame staff research team. This fall, a 20-member electorate will vote on the final 10-name ballot to determine the 2012 Frick Award winner, which will be announced Dec. 6 at baseball's Winter Meetings.

Harrelson is in his 21st year as the White Sox television play-by-play announcer. Farmer, the team's radio play-by-play voice, is in his 20th full season on the White Sox Radio Network. Stone, the White Sox television analyst for the past three seasons, is an at-large representative on the ballot.
