Following his unexpected passing last week, the Salt Lake Bees plan to honor retired broadcasting legend Steve Klauke when they take on the Reno Aces on Tuesday, June 18.

Klauke passed away due to injuries received in an auto-pedestrian accident on Monday, June 11. He was 69 years old.

“He was more than just the voice of the Bees,” manager Keith Johnson said of Klauke before Tuesday’s game. “Steve was a father, a friend, and a brother; he was all those things… I had the privilege of being around radio announcers who got opportunities in the big leagues. I don’t see any difference between them and Steve other than opportunity.”
