A Tribute To Dave
Pretty cool idea by ESPN 710.
710 ESPN Seattle and News Talk 97.3 KIRO FM, the radio home of the Mariners, will broadcast game 5 of the 1995 American League Division Series in tribute to the Hall of Fame broadcaster Dave Niehaus Saturday, November 13, 2010 at 12noon.
“My Oh My – A Tribute to Dave Niehaus” recognizes him as one of the best and most exciting broadcasters in the game. This commercial free replay of a fan favorite game as the Seattle Mariners defeated the New York Yankees in an amazing divisional comeback will include memories and comments from former players and broadcasters including Ken Griffey Jr., Jay Buhner, Rick Rizzs, Harold Reynolds, Ron Fairly and more.
“Dave’s play-by-play speaks for itself, and stands the test of time,” said Carl Gardner, Bonneville Seattle Media Group Vice President and Market Manager. “We can think of no greater tribute to the man than to re-broadcast his master work – the greatest game of his exceptional career.”
Dave Niehaus, the voice of the Seattle Mariners since the team’s inception in 1977, passed away Wednesday, November 10, 2010 at the age of 75. For more information on the passing of Dave Niehaus and to hear an audio montage of his greatest calls, visit www.MyNorthwest.com.
