Lifetime Achievement Award in Canadian Baseball
The Jack Graney Award is presented annually by the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, an honour presented just twenty-two times in the thirty-two years since its inception, to a representative of the media who has made a significant contribution to the game of baseball to Canada through their life's work.
"When I made the jump into sports writing, my dad made me promise that I would not become like the guy in 1941 who left Ted Williams off an MVP ballot because he didn't like him. I still remember in 1995 when I was filling out my MVP ballot, and I moved a player from second to sixth because I thought he was a jerk. Then I remembered what my father told me and I moved him back to second. You should try to judge players by what they do, not the way they treat you." - Bob Elliott (Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, 12/17/2010, 'Bob Elliott captures Ball Hall's Jack Graney Award', Press Release)
