    Dave Nieuhas dies at 75; voice of summer silenced, but not forgotten

    Lots of baseball radio soldiers gone in the last few years, another surprise.

    The Seattle sports community lost a legend this afternoon when Hall of Fame announcer Dave Niehaus died at age 75. A statement put out by the Mariners, quoting the Niehaus family, says he died of a heart attack.

    Obviously, for so many fans in this area and now scattered across the country, Niehaus was the voice who introduced them to Major League Baseball. He was the voice of summer for legions of Mariners devotees. It was a voice that literally melted the winter snow away and came to represent the annual hope that each new season brings

    That's awful. Nieuhas was a great announcer. I loved his "break out the rye bread & mustard, cause it's grand salami tim" quote. RIP Dave.

    This kinda hurts.
    "This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner

    Niehaus was a joy to listen to. I'm sad to hear this.

    Nieuhas has been my favorite PBP guy since I was 10 years old. It feels like a relative died.

    Niehaus was the only announcer that could make me jealous of another team's announcer. He was like a perfect blend of Marty's voice and wit and Joe's feel good attitude.

    I had only heard him a little from having MLBEI package. He seemed very good and was very easy to listen to. He was a legend in Seattle and I'm sure he willed be missed by their fans very much.

    I also loved to listen to Dave Nieuhas. He had lots of character, and he will be badly missed.

    We have sure lost some great baseball voices over these last few years....
