Aaron Goldsmith is a play-by-play announcer for FOX Sports, primarily calling college basketball and MLB games on FS1. He is also the radio voice of the Seattle Mariners.
THE BIG LEAGUES
Goldsmith began calling college basketball games on FS1 during the 2013-14 season, culminating with the Pac-12 Tournament, which he broadcast alongside former NBA and collegiate standout Sean Elliott. He first did MLB play-by-play on FS1 in 2014 – the first year MLB games appeared on the cable channel.
At the age of 29, Goldsmith was named the radio voice of the Seattle Mariners prior to the 2013 season, becoming the first full-time replacement for the legendary Dave Niehaus, who passed away in November 2010.
IN THE MINORS
Prior to getting called up by the Mariners, Goldsmith was the play-by-play voice of the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox for one season after having spent two with the Double-A Frisco RoughRiders. Earlier in his broadcasting career, he lived the true minor league experience, covering home games for the Independent Frontier League Gateway Grizzlies, working an unpaid internship doing play-by-play for the Cape Cod League Bourne (Mass.) Braves, and holding a similar post with the Double-A Portland (Maine) Sea Dogs. Between jobs, he walked dogs to earn a living.
