Blowers' 'Called Shot' Becomes Internet Sensation

MIKE BLOWERS was a journeyman as a baseball player, but as a color commentator for SEATTLE MARINERS baseball on BONNEVILLE Sports KIRO-A (710 ESPN)/SEATTLE, he's absolutely prescient. BLOWERS' uncanny prediction that the M's MATT TUIASOSOPO would not only hit his first major league home run in SUNDAY night's game, but would hit a 3-1 fastball into the second deck, came true, much to the shock and amusement of play-by-play man DAVE NIEHAUS.
BLOWERS' prediction and NIEHAUS' home run call have become a hit on the Internet; hear the clips by clicking here and listen to M's studio host NEW YORK VINNIE RICHICHI's feature on the "called shot" by clicking here.
