At Safeco Field, on December 11, 2010, the Seattle Mariners will host a “Public Celebration of Life” in honor of the late Dave Niehaus, the amazing Mariners broadcaster who recently passed away of a heart attack at his Bellevue home.
Players, colleagues, and family will speak about Dave and his wonderful personality, stunning career, and love for baseball. The exact program is still being crafted.
Safeco Field will open at noon. The event will begin at 1:10 PM. There will be free parking at the Safeco Field garage. Patrons are advised to dress warmly. Coffee, hot tea and hot cocoa will be available free of charge. Patrons are asked to enter through the Home Plate Gate.
The Seattle Mariners have noted that if fans wish to honor Dave’s memory by means of a donation, the family of Dave Niehaus have suggested the following organizations:
• American Heart Association (www.americanheart.org)
• American Diabetes Association (www.diabetes.org)
• Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (www.foodallergy.org)
