Best Local Sports Fixture

Dick Calvert

Not only has the 79-year-old Calvert been the public-address voice for every UNLV sport at some point since 1971—he still voices each men’s basketball and football game—but the former Los Angeles Dodgers farmhand and scout has also hosted visiting baseball scouts at Cashman Field for 30 years. The 2010 Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame inductee is a walking Las Vegas sports history book, as well as one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet.
