Tocco takes booth for Smokies

Former Biscuits voice Jim Tocco is back at Riverwalk Stadium today through the end of the series, but he's here for the dark side.

Tocco is filling in for Mick Gillispie, the usual Tennessee broadcaster who is helping out with the SEC tournament this week in Hoover. Gillispie, an Alabama graduate, was here Wednesday.

You'll also find that turf has made a triumphant return to Riverwalk today. It has a toehold in the home bullpen's home-plate area. It's here because the regular crushed-rock warning track damages too many baseballs.
