Nice milestone for Steve Klauke, the Voice of the Salt Lake Bees: Last night he called his 2,500th game for the Pacific Coast League franchise, the only announcer in the team’s history.
Klauke and the Bees debuted in Triple-A in 1994, and he’s been a Utah broadcasting institution ever since. With the milestone, he becomes just the fourth current Pacific Coast League team broadcaster to reach the 2,500 games-called mark with one PCL team.
“This is an exceptional accomplishment for Steve and we are extremely proud to call him our own,” said Randy Rigby, president of the Salt Lake Bees and Larry H. Miller Sports & Entertainment. “Few broadcasters reach such a significant career milestone, especially while missing only nine games in 18 seasons. Our organization would like to congratulate Steve and thank him for all of his hard work and dedication to the Bees and baseball in Utah.”
He was recognized in a pregame ceremony, throwing out the first pitch.
