R.I.P. Dave.

“Washington and the Pacific Northwest have lost a legend.

Seattle Mariners sportscaster Dave Niehaus, known to many across The Evergreen State and beyond as the voice of summer, died at his home of a heart attack today, his family and the team confirmed this afternoon. He was seventy five.

Beloved by Mariners fans everywhere, Niehaus had been part of the organization since its inception, calling games season after season.

His catchphrases are well-known throughout the region, including My oh my!, Swung on and belted, Fly, fly away! and Get out the rye bread and the mustard, Grandma, it’s grand salami time!

Excepted from here.
