Audio: Relive Some Of Dave Niehaus' Best Calls

Seattle Mariners' broadcaster Dave Niehaus thrilled fans with his trademark sayings and memorable calls throughout the 33 years he worked for the team. Though the Mariners have toiled in futility for the better part of those three decades, Niehaus always found a way to make extraordinary moments even greater with his words.

From his signature "my oh my" to his grand slam call -- "get out the rye bread and the mustard grandma, it's grand salami time" -- Niehaus' voice was unmistakable. Many Mariners' fans can still recite his call of "the double" -- Edgar Martinez' game-winning hit in the 1995 American League Division Series -- word-for-word, a decade after it happened. 

The Seattle Times put together a montage of his greatest hits and calls on the night of his passing. From Ken Griffey Jr.'s first at-bat to the aforementioned double, the audio captures the essence of Niehaus in all his glory.
