Calkins has been named the best sports columnist in the country five times by the Associated Press sports editors, but still figures his best columns are about the people who make Memphis what it is.

When Minnie Miñoso was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday, nobody was happier than Rep. Steve Cohen. A story of baseball, kindness — and an extraordinary life.
