On November 10, 2010 we were all saddened to hear the news that we had lost our voice of summer, long-time Seattle Mariner broadcaster Dave Niehaus at the age of 75. Over the 32 years that Dave called Mariners’ games he became part of our fabric. His passing in November touched baseball fans all across the region and he will be truly missed. He was part of a special baseball era in our city.
The Council and I honored Dave in a pregame ceremony before the Mariners home opener on April 8th. I presented a proclamation to the Niehaus family which proclaimed this year’s opening day as “My Oh My,” Dave Niehaus Day. We unveiled and placed honorary street signs claiming a stretch of 1st Avenue South as “Dave Niehaus Way South.” It was my absolute honor to recognize Dave by presenting this proclamation to his family. You can view the signed proclamation by going here: .pdf of signed proclamation.
