Seattle hires Aaron Goldsmith as radio announcer

The Seattle Mariners have hired Aaron Goldsmith to team with
veteran broadcaster Rick Rizzs on radio broadcasts beginning with
the 2013 season.

The Mariners made the announcement on Thursday. Goldsmith
becomes a permanent fixture after the Mariners went two seasons
with a rotation of announcers working alongside Rizzs following the
death of Hall of Fame broadcaster Dave Niehaus. Rizzs will remain
the team’s lead radio announcer.

Goldsmith spent the 2012 season as the lead broadcaster for the
Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox. Before that, he called games for two
seasons with Double-A Frisco in the Texas League. In 2009,
Goldsmith worked for Double-A Portland of the Eastern League.
