Tom Hamilton is an American sportscaster, primarily known as the chief radio play-by-play announcer for the Major League Baseball team in Cleveland. During the baseball off-season, Hamilton also calls college basketball games for the Big Ten Network.
Known to Cleveland fans as “Hammy”, he has been named the NSSA Ohio Sportscaster of the Year seven times, was inducted into the Cleveland Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2009, and earned the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards in 2015.
Hamilton and his wife, Wendy, have four children. Their eldest son, Nick, graduated from Kent State University, where he was a key member of 2012 College World Series qualifying Kent Golden Flashes and played three years of pro ball and is now a scout for the Kansas City Royals.
Tom, Wendy, and Nick have a special connection to CHSC. At age 3, Nick was diagnosed with moderate to severe hearing loss and wears hearing aids in both ears. He credits the patience and persistence of his parents, and the professional services he received over the years at CHSC to his continued success – in baseball and in life.
