Eric Nadel Going Into Rangers Hall of Fame

Nadel to be inducted Aug. 11



    Longtime Texas Rangers radio broadcaster Eric Nadel will be inducted into the team's Hall of Fame this summer.

    Nadel has been calling Rangers games for 34 of the team's 40 years, making him the longest-tenured broadcaster in the history of the franchise.

    Nadel will become the 15th inductee into the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame during pregame ceremonies Aug. 11.

    The Rangers are hosting Detroit that evening and will also honor members of the clubs's 40th Anniversary All-Time Team that night.

    Nadel will enter the team's hall for his contributions in a "non-playing capacity," joining former manager Johnny Oates (2003), former Arlington Mayor Tom Vandergriff (2004), former broadcaster Mark Holtz (2005) and former player, general manager and broadcaster Tom Grieve (2010) as Hall of Famers in that category.

    Since 2009, non-players are eligible for induction into the team's Hall of Fame on even-numbered years.

    Nadel, who graduated from Brown University, is a 1991 inductee in the Texas Baseball Hall of Fame and has won numerous awards over the course of his career.
