Hip-hop superstar and Seattle native Macklemore is being brought back to open the Seattle Mariners home schedule opener.

Before exploding on the scene with his song "Thrift Shop," Macklemore paid tribute to former Mariners broadcaster Dave Niehaus prior to the 2011 opening day game with his original tune called "My Oh My".

Macklemore will perform a mini concert at the newly named T-Mobile Park - formerly Safeco Field - at 3:30 p.m. First pitch between the Mariners and the defending World Champion Boston Red Sox is slated for 4:10 p.m.
