Aaron Goldsmith

Aaron Goldsmith (born August 29, 1983, in Wichita, Kansas) is an American sportscaster.

Since 2013, he has been a play-by-play announcer for the Seattle Mariners Radio Network,[1] working innings 3, 6 and 7 of each game. In addition, Goldsmith also does some of the lead play-by-play on selected games for Root Sports Northwest during the Mariners baseball season.[2] Goldsmith also does selected baseball games, primarily on selected Saturdays for Fox Sports 1. In the off-season, he also provides play-by-play for college football on Sports USA Radio Network and Pac-12 basketball on Fox Sports 1.

Goldsmith spent the early part of his childhood in Wichita, Kansas and he was a Royals fan. He attended his first game at Kauffman Stadium and he has stated that Bo Jackson, George Brett, and Bret Saberhagen were some of his favorite players as a child. When his family moved to St. Louis, Goldsmith became a Cardinals fan. Goldsmith has stated that legendary Cardinals announcer Jack Buck was a big influence to him and that he meant just as much to St. Louis as legendary Mariners announcer Dave Niehaus meant to Seattle.

When Goldsmith was attending Principia College in Illinois working on a degree in history, he said that he woke up one morning, thinking that sportscasting may be a fun career. After graduating from Principia with his history degree, Goldsmith began taking classes at the Broadcast Center in St. Louis. Due to his history background, Goldsmith often found he was four years behind other students. It took 10 months for Goldsmith to graduate from The Broadcast Center.

Upon graduation, Goldsmith began play-by-play broadcasting as an intern for Gateway Grizzlies games. The year was 2007, and Goldsmith would provide 2-innings of play-by-play for each home game.[3] Goldsmith would follow this up with an unpaid internship with the Bourne Braves and then a similar position with the Portland Sea Dogs. In all cases, Goldsmith would be allowed to call select games or innings.[4] During these stints, Goldsmith often found himself starving after calling games and realized he didn't even have a dollar to his name.[1]

After a brief time with the Sea Dogs, Goldsmith worked as the play-by-play voice for the Frisco RoughRiders. He would also serve as the team's manager of broadcasting and public relations. Goldsmith would remain with the RoughRiders for two seasons.[5] During his time with the RoughRiders, Goldsmith proposed to his wife, Heather, and she accepted.[1]

In 2012, Goldsmith was hired to be the play-by-play voice for the Pawsox Radio Network. Goldsmith would provide play-by-play for every game that season, a first for himself. Goldsmith admits he joined the PawSox because of their history to produce big name announcers, but he knew that was no guarantee.[5]

Finally in 2013, Goldsmith joined the Mariners announcing team alongside Rick Rizzs. Goldsmith and his family now live in the Seattle suburb of Kirkland. Goldsmith's play-by-play style is often attributed to an adaptation of Vin Scully,[6] but Goldsmith attributes his style to his work with Eric Nadel and Dave O'Brien.[5]

Guitarrón mexicano

The guitarrón mexicano (the Spanish name of a "big Mexican guitar", the suffix -ón being a Spanish augmentative) or Mexican guitarrón is a very large, deep-bodied Mexican six-string acoustic bass played traditionally in Mariachi groups. Although similar to the guitar, it is not a derivative of that instrument, but was independently developed from the sixteenth-century Spanish bajo de uña ("fingernail[-plucked] bass"). Because its great size gives it volume, it does not require electric amplification for performances in small venues. The guitarrón is fretless with heavy gauge strings, most commonly nylon for the high three and wound metal for the low three. The guitarrón is usually played by doubling notes at the octave, a practice facilitated by the standard guitarrón tuning A1 D2 G2 C3 E3 A2.

The guitarrón was the inspiration behind Ernie Ball's development of the first modern acoustic bass guitar, released on the market in 1972.

Seattle Mariners

The Seattle Mariners are an American professional baseball team based in Seattle, Washington. The Mariners compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) West Division. The team joined the American League as an expansion team in 1977 playing their home games in the Kingdome. Since July 1999, the Mariners' home ballpark has been T-Mobile Park (formerly Safeco Field), located in the SoDo neighborhood of Seattle.

The "Mariners" name originates from the prominence of marine culture in the city of Seattle. They are nicknamed the M's, a title featured in their primary logo from 1987 to 1992. They adopted their current team colors – navy blue, northwest green (teal), and silver – prior to the 1993 season, after having been royal blue and gold since the team's inception. Their mascot is the Mariner Moose.

The organization did not field a winning team until 1991, and any real success eluded them until 1995 when they won their first division championship and defeated the New York Yankees in the ALDS. The game-winning hit in Game 5, in which Edgar Martínez drove home Ken Griffey Jr. to win the game in the 11th inning, clinched a series win for the Mariners, served as a powerful impetus to preserve baseball in Seattle, and has since become an iconic moment in team history.

The Mariners won 116 games in 2001, which set the American League record for most wins in a single season and tied the 1906 Chicago Cubs for the Major League record for most wins in a single season.

Through the end of the 2018 season, the franchise has finished with a losing record in 28 of 42 seasons. The Mariners are one of seven Major League Baseball teams who have never won a World Series championship, and one of two (along with the Washington Nationals) never to have played in a World Series. They hold the longest playoff drought in all of the four major North American professional sports, having not qualified for the playoffs since their 116-win season in 2001.

The Mariners Radio Network is the name applied to the radio stations which carry Seattle Mariners baseball games throughout the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. Alaska Airlines currently serves as the primary sponsor for the network.

If the Mariners went to extra innings, Niehaus did the odd innings and Rizzs did the even innings. Niehaus died on November 10, 2010. For the 2011 season, Rizzs teamed with a rotating group of former Mariners announcers and players, including Ron Fairly, Ken Wilson, Ken Levine, Dave Valle, and Dan Wilson; this lineup was again used in the 2012 season. Aaron Goldsmith joined Rizzs as the club's radio announcing team at the start of the 2013 season.
