ST. MARYS, Ont. -- Jerry Howarth, the longtime radio voice of the Toronto Blue Jays, has been named the winner of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame's 2012 Jack Graney Award.

The award is presented to a member of the media who has made significant contributions to baseball in Canada through their life's work.

"Jerry Howarth is the voice of summer for thousands of Canadians," Hall of Fame operations director Scott Crawford said Thursday in a release. "In his 32 seasons on Blue Jays' airwaves, he has set the standard for play-by-play commentators in our country. And not only is Jerry Howarth a great broadcaster, he's an outstanding citizen who does a lot for his community. I can't think of anyone more deserving of this honour."

Howarth will be presented with the award in a pre-game ceremony at Rogers Centre early in the 2013 season.
