Hall of Fame announcer Dave Niehaus passed away yesterday at the age of 75. He was known as the distinctive raspy play-by-play voice of the Seattle Mariners. I'm not even a Mariners fan but I somehow get chills listening to his call of the 1995 ALCS series against the New York Yankees. The KingDome looked as if it was about to be shaken to it's very core with the incredible thrill in Niehaus's voice as Edgar Martinez knocked in Junior. Incredible.
