MLB Network


Dave has enjoyed appearing as a correspondent on MLB Network’s “The Rundown” since 2011 to report on the Mariners. In addition, you might catch him now and again talking baseball with any of the always-entertaining studio hosts!


Seattle Mariners

Mariners-pop-up 2

2015 is Dave’s ninth calling the action in the Mariners TV booth along with former Seattle third baseman, Mike Blowers. Their games air on Root Sports throughout the Pacific Northwest, with a selection of games also appearing on MLB Network.


Mariners’ baseball proved particularly memorable for Dave in 2012, offering the opportunity to call three history-making pitching performances – two perfect games and a combined no-hitter! Dave called the action for FOX-TV on April 21st when the White Sox’ Phillip Humber humbled the Mariners, and was at the mic for Root Sports when a six-man Mariners’ squad pitched a combined no-hitter against the Dodgers on June 8th. The climax of these historic games was Mariners’ ace Felix Hernandez’ perfecto against Tampa Bay on April 15th, which Dave had the privilege of calling for Root.
