If you’ve watched a Cleveland Cavaliers game on TV in the past 13 years, you likely heard the voice of Fred McLeod. The Cavs’ play-by-play announcer died suddenly on Monday. He was 67.  WKSU sports commentator Terry Pluto said the longtime broadcaster was about to enter his 14th season with an organization that he loved.

The roar of the crowd, the boom of the sound system, the flash of fireworks — all part of the thrill for many fans who flock to NFL games, but for others, including those on the autism spectrum with sensory issues, the experience can be too much.

Now a growing number of teams are including "sensory inclusive spaces" within their arenas to accommodate them.

Cleveland Cavaliers TV play-by-play broadcaster Fred McLeod passed away Monday night, according to a statement from the team Tuesday.

He was 67 years old. No cause of death has been released.

The Ohio State football team kicks off the 2019 season this weekend inside Ohio Stadium, and it’s a year of firsts for the Buckeyes.

Pro baseball is a grueling six-month, 162-game season. And the Indians are especially beat up as they head into the home stretch. Yet they’re still in the playoff picture.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto said the team has been built to face down adversity. 

After playing to a 2-2 draw in Columbus earlier this month, FC Cincinnati and Columbus Crew SC are preparing to do battle again this weekend in Cincinnati.
