OAKLAND–The Oakland Athletics Spanish radio flagship station KIQI 1010AM radio San Francisco, has the unique distinction of having Manolo Hernandez-Douen as analyst on the air once again for all home games, and this year he is the President of the bay area chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America. Founded in 1908, today there are more than 700 active members working for newspapers, magazines and major websites, they have also been authorized by the National Baseball Hall of Fame to serve as the body that elects former player for enshrinement. This would be the eighth season for Manolo on the Oakland A’s Spanish radio network. The hardest working baseball writer I know, who I am proud to have called my friend for 30 years. Ironically when I first met Manolo it was not during a baseball game but during an NBA game in Los Angeles,in the 1990’s, as I was doing Spanish play by play of the Golden State Warriors and he was covering for the Spanish daily La Opinion. He was also editor for El Nuevo Heraldo in Miami, largest Spanish daily newspaper in Southern Florida. He currently writes for

a site similar to, but with original context 100% in Spanish language.

Felicidades Manolo!
