The scene from Safeco for Niehaus memorial
The crowd is gathering at Safeco Field for Dave Niehaus’ ceremony. You can watch live on mariners.com starting at 12:45 p.m.
The ceremony itself begins at 1:10 p.m,, not coincidentally the starting time of all the day games Niehaus broadcast over his 34 years as the Voice of the Mariners.
The whole program will take just over an hour, with a Niehaus tribute video at 1:12 p.m., followed by a string of speakers and videos with Rick Rizzs serving as the Master of Ceremonies.
Knowing the speakers — Jay Buhner, Edgar Martinez, Dan Wilson, Ron Fairly — there’ll be some funny stories mixed in with wonderful memories.
Here’s a link to the live broadcast.
