|Summary, etc.:|| "The biography of Hall of Fame baseball broadcaster, Dave Niehaus. This reverent reflection on his life and work begins in his childhood and takes us through his celebrated career. Dave Niehaus made history behind a radio microphone on April 6, 1977, calling the Seattle Mariners first Major League Baseball® game in the Seattle Kingdome. For more than three decades in Seattle, until his death in 2010, his lyrical play-by-play was a nightly inspiration to the fans. Through seasons good and bad, whether attendance rose or fell at the ballpark, his rock-solid radio and television ratings always reflected a simple truth: Niehaus was universally loved by everyone associated with Mariner baseball. An Indiana native who became a celebrated sports figure in the Pacific Northwest, Niehaus earned his reputation as one of the finest announcers in the game. His career spanned more than a half-century, beginning at Indiana University and continuing through stints with the Armed Forces Television and Radio Service and the California Angels. His impressive resume included UCLA football and basketball as well as Los Angeles Rams football. His excellence and dedication to his craft culminated in his induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008."--Amazon.com.
