SEATTLE, Wash. — The Seattle Mariners organization is saddened today upon learning of the passing of longtime Major League player and broadcaster Ron Fairly.
“Ron was a key voice in our history,” said Mariners President & CEO Kevin Mather. “He joined our team at the start of an important era of Seattle baseball, beginning the same year as Lou Piniella and bringing over a decade of exciting baseball to our fans on TV and radio. Our thoughts are with his three sons: Mike, Steve and Patrick; and his grandchildren.”
Ron was pre-deceased by his wife, Mary.
