If you ever sit down with Bill Brown to talk about Houston Astros baseball, you'll notice the remarkable ease with which he bounces between anecdotes from different generations. The man they call "Brownie" recalls stories about the Biggio-Bagwell-Caminiti nucleus just as easily as he recounts a Carlos Correa or Jose Altuve home run from this past summer. Brown brings this same storytelling skill to his play-by-play work on television, emanating that casual elegance in the games he calls for ROOT Sports Southwest. With 30 years announcing Astros games under his belt, Brown is the closest thing to a team historian currently working for the team. Now that the Astros appear ready for perennial playoff contention, it's great to see Brownie's voice attached to important games once again.
