A little fan-friendly information
It kind of got lost in the avalanche of Mariners news that broke Thursday night, so wanted to draw attention to a story I wrote earlier Thursday afternoon about the latest on the Dave Niehaus “Celebration of Life” memorial.
The Mariners announced that Jay Buhner, Dan Wilson, Chuck Armstrong and Ron Fairly will be speaking at that Dec. 11 event at Safeco Field, along with video presentations from a number of broadcast peers around the country as well as Ken Griffey Jr.
The 1:10 p.m. program is free to the public and you can get all the details here.
While we’re in the fan update mode, the Mariners are also promoting the fact that Buhner will be at the Southcenter Mariners Team Store on Sunday, Dec. 12 from 1-2 p.m. to pose for photos and sign autographs.
Additionally, the Santa Moose will be at Mariners Team Stores at Alderwood Mall (Sunday, Dec. 12 from 3-4 p.m.), Bellevue Square (Friday, Dec. 17 from 7-8 p.m.), Westlake Mall (Saturday, Dec. 18 from 2-3 p.m.) and Southcenter (Saturday, Dec. 18 from 4:30-5:30 p.m.).
And Buhner and Mike Blowers will be at the Bellevue Team Store on Friday, Dec. 17 from 6-8 p.m. as special guests on the Hot Stove League show which will be broadcasting live with Shannon Drayer and Mike Salk.
Drayer and Salk are hosting their next Hot Stove League Show from Orlando at the Winter Meetings next Tuesday from 6-8 p.m.
