Died at age 75 today. RIP.:(: Couldn't help but to think of this famous call, when the Mariners beat the Yankees in the '95 division series:

I send a lot of time in Seattle. He's a really good announcer. RIP

When I lived in Alaska, the only regular-season baseball I got was the Mariners Sunday afternoon game and the national Sunday night game, both on radio. I enjoyed Dave Niehaus, except for the Sunday when a Mariners game against the White Sox was pre-empted for a coverage of a fishing derby.

I guess it was time to "fly away".

"My,oh my." :(:

I grew up listening to Dave. I loved his grand slam call.

Got a chance to meet him at a game once - a very nice man. Thoughts are with his family and the Mariners family.
