RIP Dave


Click here to listen to Dave


Somewhere around twenty years ago Ken Griffey Jr. was coming into his own. His talent was welcomed by every baseball fan in the Northwest, but there wasn't a happier soul than long-suffering Mariners announcer Dave Niehaus. He recorded an homage to Griffey, comparing him to his own childhood hero Stan Musial. It was part of the Mariners weekly Saturday Magazine radio show. Twenty years ago, I popped a tape into my deck and recorded that story. I dug it out tonight, digitized it, and present it here for your benefit.

One of the contributors to that storied program was Brad Perkins, who died of brain cancer last year. I wonder if they allow Hot Stoves in Heaven?
