Every kid I knew made the edge food store owner a ton of money by getting baseball cards. It was all about obtaining a Mickey Mantle newbie card. If you invested all the cash you gained cutting grass and also being a paper service provider as well as still could not score a Mickey card, you sucked in your intestine and also traded your following best lots cards for Mickey.
It was all concerning Mickey, as well as the gum naturally. There was absolutely nothing like the bubble gum in baseball cards. We attempted to accumulate enough eating gum, so we could push it out in our cheek, like Nellie Fox, the sure-handed 2nd baseman for the Chicago White Sox with the largest chaw of tobacco in his cheek you ever before saw.
The New York Yankees won 5 consecutive World Series from 1949 to 1953, as well as every youngster understood that. If you did not know that, you just weren't a kid as well as you didn't play baseball. But every kid in my community played baseball.
We grew up on the wrong side of the city. We played baseball in the street with a backup catcher, and yes, we broke some windows, both in cars and also residences. I can tell you that because I was catching.
I took my glasses off so I would not damage them. I captured without a catcher's mask because I couldn't pay for one. That could be why I took two heater foul tips, and also a horrible captain hook, in the mouth.
I bled like a porker, and also, my top front teeth resembled I had been hit by a Chevy Coupe in a minor car accident. I believe I was in shock because I would not cry; I would certainly obtain on my bike as well as trip home, offering my bad mother the fits when she saw me. When I got involved in organized baseball, they offered me a mask.
We assumed we were difficult as nails, as well as some of us had the mangled front teeth to confirm it.
Twenty years later I arrived in Seattle. No professional baseball team existed here at the time. In 1977, the Seattle Mariners came along as a replacement for the old Seattle Pilots, (who later became the Milwaukee Brewers).Niehaus called the Mariners action for thirty-four years until to his voice went silent.
Loads upon loads of baseball fans, players, trains and close friends waited patiently to proclaim the impact of Dave Niehaus upon their life.
Listening to Dave Niehaus' voice, you felt you were as close to the action on the field as he was on game day if you were a baseball fan.
There will never once more be another Dave Niehaus. His generation passed and also, as he aged, the world changed. The impact of play-by-play broadcasters on the radio has diminished with the arrival of tv, and a lot more specifically the Internet.
However celebrating the life of Dave Niehaus will be a joy for those people who thought of him as our father-figure, as well as treasured the link of his voice to our baseball world.
A friend once claimed to me that "Time and memories are everlasting, memories come from time ... however time from memories, never.".
And that is now just how it is with Dave Niehaus - we have fantastic memories, but his time is up.
The thing I admire and also associate with the most around Dave Niehaus was his thankfulness.
Dave once said these two things:
I enjoy the game, the broadcast booth, seeing the field in every ballpark we see. It's all I ever wished to do, and I've obtained the chance to do it for a long time. I've enjoyed every min of it. I'm a lucky man.
I recognize several bigger names have preceded me in winning this honor. As well as there will be some larger names after me to win this award. But nobody will ever before be much more appreciative.
The man who lives his life with thankfulness is a big man. So just how high was Dave Niehaus? I'm delighted you asked. Dave Niehaus was twenty feet high, and he will indeed proceed to grow in stature as the years pass.>
