Dave Niehaus, the Seattle Mariners' legendary broadcaster, died today at age 75, according to team reports. Niehaus, who was awarded the Ford Frick Award at his Hall of Fame induction in 2008, has been the Mariners voice since their inaugural year of 1977.

He was always an enjoyable voice during baseball games, whether the Mariners won or lost. He made famous catchphrases like "Grand Salami" and "It will FLYY away." His greatest moments undoubtedly came during the historical Mariner run to end the 1995 season.

Dave will be missed by Mariners fans and baseball fans across the country. I know I certainly will.

The team is expected to make a statement on his death shortly.
