Jerry Coleman (1924-2014) successfully transitioned from the field to the broadcast booth in 1960. He has been a fan-favorite on the radio airwaves for the last 41 years, including 32 seasons, the last 23 consecutive, as voice of the San Diego Padres. In 2005, Coleman was named the recipient of the Baseball Hall of Fame's Ford C. Frick Award. The 1950 all-star appeared in six World Series in nine seasons, compiling a .263 batting average in 723 career games, earning Rookie of the Year honors from the Associated Press in 1949 and World Series' Most Valuable Player honors in 1950. Twice during his tenure as a player, Coleman's career was interrupted because of military service as a Marine pilot, during World War II and Korea, when he flew 120 missions, received two distinguished flying crosses, 13 Air Medals and three Navy citations, while earning the title of lieutenant colonel.
