  • Former Angels Broadcaster Will "Fly Away" To The Hall Of Fame

    Yes, I remember the days in the early 70's when Dave Niehaus worked with Dick Enberg and Don Drysdale in the Angels broadcast booth.

    Today, he's been named to the broadcasters wing of the Broadcasters Hall Of Fame.

    And oh yeah, a few folks in the Great Northwest might know him too.

    My, oh, my Dave Niehaus.

    NEW YORK -- Happy birthday, Dave Niehaus, you're headed for the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

    Niehaus, a fixture in the Seattle Mariners' broadcast booth since they entered the American League as an expansion franchise in 1977, was named the 2008 winner of the Ford C. Frick Award on Tuesday and will be honored at the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies on July 27 at the Clark Sports Center in Cooperstown, N.Y. The news came on Niehaus' 73rd birthday. It marked the second consecutive year that the award for major contributions to baseball broadcasting has been won by an announcer who has covered his club since its inception. Niehaus follows Denny Matthews, the broadcaster for the Kansas City Royals since their debut season of 1969.

    And on his birthday, yet. Congratulations to Dave, the Mariners and their fans.

      What a great honor! Congrats to him! I am very familiar with him because whenever I was at my Grandparent's home in Washington during baseball season I'd listen to him work his magic. I love his style.
