Davie Niehaus, 1935-2010

The Mariner family suffered a great loss today.  The original broadcaster and last member of the 1977 inaugural year died today from a heart attack.  His voice and his enthusiasm for this team will be missed. 

It would have been nice for an original member to see the Mariners achieve a title, but those days are a long ways away.  He did call some very magic moments in the franchise short history.  Here is a link to the Mariners article.

Here is what Griffey had to say of Dave’s passing.
