"I Don't Believe It"

Seattle Mariner Broadcaster Dave Niehaus has been awarded the 2008 winner of the "Ford C Frick Award". The award is the most esteemed prize for baseball announcers and will be presented during the induction ceremonies for the baseball Hall Of Fame on July 27th in Cooperstown, New York.
Niehaus, who has been with the Mariners since their inception in 1977, is noted for his trademark "My Oh My"andhis "grand salami" call. The call that send shivers down the spines of Mariner fans occurred in the 1995 Play offs, when Edgar Martinez hit a game winning double beating the Yankees, as Ken Griffey scored the winning run from first base, the entire teams piled on top of him and Niehaus exclaimed "I don't believe it!"
