Anyone who has ever been to a Mariners game will remember Rick. With the death of Dave Niehaus last year, and The Peanut Man this year, the two most loved figures associated with the team who never wore the uniform are now gone…
Rick Kaminski, known to generations of Mariners fans as The Peanut Man, working games since the team’s first season in 1977, has died.
Kaminski, 67, was hospitalized this week after a brain aneurysm. His partner, Candi Mindt-Keener, announced Wednesday that he died overnight at Evergreen Medical Center.
Kaminski was famous for his humor and his accurate arm tossing bags of peanuts to fans, often behind his back. He was a fixture at the Kingdome and later Safeco Field while also working other local games.
