Cards announcer Mike Shannon calls game atop red rubber ball

At first glance, it looks like Mike Shannon is in the middle of a class at Gymboree.

But after further investigation, we discovered he is actually calling a Cardinals game.

The voice of the team swapped his chair for a medicine ball years ago after a doctor recommended he try the red rubbery sphere to help ease his back pain.

It's clear that small ball isn't Shannon's thing.
