The Top Step with broadcaster Dave Sims

Dave Sims is the current play-by-play broadcaster for the Seattle Mariners on Root Sports Northwest, and has called Mariners games since 2007. Throughout his career, he has also covered many college basketball games including George Mason University’s upset of the University of Connecticut in the 2006 Elite Eight. Sims has the distinction of being the only Major League broadcaster to call two perfect games in the same season, a feat he achieved in 2012.

He was generous enough to talk with me recently for the blog, and provided a lot of interesting insight. I compiled it all with Paul Fritschner, and it became our debut episode of “The Top Step” for 2015.

If you are new to the program, “The Top Step” is our podcast-style talk show about all things baseball, including anything and everything that may be discussed on the top step of the dugout.

Special thanks to Dave for joining us for this episode, and we’ll be posting many more throughout the summer.
