Calhoun a steadying voice during craziness at Grizzlies games
A lot of silliness happens between innings at an average Gateway Grizzlies game, as eyeball races and the like generate the giddy laughter of hundreds of kids in the stands.
As play resumes, however, the rich, buttery baritone of public address announcer Tom Calhoun can be heard calling the rank and file back to order.
Calhoun is no minor-league talent, having served in the same position with the St. Louis Blues hockey team since 1987. As good as he is behind the microphone, Calhoun could very well have gone through his professional life never pursuing such a thing.
