The lead color commentator for the Seattle Mariners in the excitable but loveable Dave Neihaus. This guy has been calling games since, like, the Civil War, and he has a near inexhaustible supply of stock “baseball phrases.” After a while you may think you’ve heard them all, but sooner or later he’ll spring a new one on you.
Co-announcer Rick Rizz: We just got word that White Sox are leading the Royals 14-0 in the eighth inning.
Dave Neihaus: I’ve been following that game. The White Sox need only three more runs to tie the record for the most lopsided shutout in the history of baseball.
RR: Man, I wonder what the scorecard looks like for that one.
DN: I’ve seen it, and it’s a mess. The turning point in that game was the National Anthem.
