The Seattle Mariners’ Classy ‘Voice’ is Still Revered by Fans, 6 Years After His Death
June 29, 2017
Now during the 40th anniversary of the franchise, Niehaus has his own story.
Lifelong friend Billy Mac recently penned Niehaus’ biography, entitled “My Oh My: The Dave Niehaus Story” with forewords by Rick Rizzs and Kevin Cremin. The 344-page bio of the late Niehaus is told in nine innings, each representing a chapter in his life.
Niehuas is survived by his wife Marilyn and three children. He was inducted into the Mariners Hall of Fame in 2000 and received the Ford C. Frick Award from the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008. In 2011 the Mariners unveiled a bronze Niehaus statue in right-center field at Safeco Field.
“My Oh My: The Dave Niehaus Story” will forever be treasured by me, my children and my grandchildren,” Marilyn said of the book, “a wonderful collection of stories to remember Dave by, a man who was the best husband, father and grandfather one could ever hope for. Thank you Billy for giving all of us this gift.”
The book is available for purchase at thedaveniehausstory.com.
