5 Years Ago Today the Seattle Mariners Lost Their Voice – RIP, Dave Niehaus #MyOhMy
Five years ago today, baseball fans across the Pacific Northwest were shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden passing of the Seattle Mariners original Hall Of Fame play-by-play announcer, Dave Niehaus.
Since Niehaus died during the off-season, it was not until April the following year that the Mariners could give the voice of the M's a proper tribute in front of an Opening Day crowd at SafeCo Field. The ceremony was highlighted by a then little known local rap artist by the name of Macklemore. The official video to his song "My Oh My" has been seen by over 17 million on YouTube.com
Here is the performance, complete with video highlights and, arguably, Niehaus' most well-known call included followed by a compilation of some of his most memorable radio calls:
