"My, Oh, My, That One's Going to Fly Away!!"
The Mariners' long-time, and I mean long time, announcer Dave Niehaus is this year's recipient of the Ford Frick Award, has been elected in to baseball's highest announcer's booth, Cooperstown. That's right, the man who has only missed 82 of the Mariners' 4,899 games, starting with the first ever Mariners' game, way back in 1977. Not a bad 73rd birthday present, eh?
