Jon Miller Awkwardly Congratulates Dave Van Horne By Bringing Up His Grudge Against ESPN

Former Expos and current Marlins announcer Dave Van Horne will be this year’s recipient of the Ford C. Frick award given out by the Baseball Hall of Fame.  The award honors the best broadcasters in baseball and past winners include Bob Uecker, Harry Kalas, Vin Scully, and Ernie Harwell.  As part of the celebration of Van Horne receiving the prestigious honor, the Marlins flagship radio station (790 The Ticket in Miami) put together a collection of fellow honorees taping congratulatory messages for Dave Van Horne.  One of them happened to be last year’s Ford C. Frick award winner, Jon Miller.  Miller of course was unsanctimoniously dumped as the play by play man of Sunday Night Baseball by ESPN last year.  At least he didn’t let his bitterness towards ESPN dominate his message for Van Horne.  Because, you know, that would just be petty.  As you can tell from the veiled bitterness and ironic well-wishes in the clip below, Jon hasn’t quite let his ESPN firing go just yet…
