While plans are still being finalized, the Mariners have set Dec. 11 as the date for a formal “Public Celebration of Life” for late broadcaster Dave Niehaus.

There will be free parking for the event in the Safeco Field garage. Famns are to enter the ballpark through the Home Plate gate at the corner of 1st Ave. South and Edgar Martinez Dr.
Though the roof will protect from any rain, the team is advising fans to dress warmly for the event. Coffee, tea and hot cocoa will be distributed free of charge.
