Aaron Goldsmith (born August 29, 1983, in Wichita, Kansas) is an American sportscaster who does some of the lead play-by-play on selected games for Root Sports Northwest during the Mariners baseball season.[1] In the off-season, he also provides play-by-play for Pac-12 basketball on Fox Sports 1.

Early years

Goldsmith was born in St. Louis, Missouri. He obtained a History degree from Principia College in Elsah, Illinois.[2]


Upon graduation, Goldsmith began play-by-play broadcasting as an intern for Gateway Grizzlies games. The year was 2007, and Goldsmith would provide 2-innings of play-by-play for each home game.[3] Goldsmith would follow this up with an unpaid internship with the Bourne Braves and then a similar position with the Portland Sea Dogs. In all cases, Goldsmith would be allowed to call select games or innings.[4] During these stints, Goldsmith often found himself starving after calling games and realized he didn't even have a dollar to his name.[5]

After a brief time with the Sea Dogs, Goldsmith worked as the play-by-play voice for the Frisco RoughRiders. He would also serve as the team's manager of broadcasting and public relations. Goldsmith would remain with the RoughRiders for two seasons.[6] During his time with the RoughRiders, Goldsmith proposed to his wife, Heather, and she accepted.[5]

In 2012, Goldsmith was hired to be the play-by-play voice for the Pawsox Radio Network. Goldsmith would provide play-by-play for every game that season, a first for himself. Goldsmith admits he joined the PawSox because of their history to produce big name announcers, but he knew that was no guarantee.[6]

Finally in 2013, Goldsmith joined the Mariners announcing team alongside Rick Rizzs. Goldsmith and his family now live in the Seattle suburb of Kirkland. Goldsmith's play-by-play style is often attributed to an adaptation of Vin Scully,[7][8] but Goldsmith attributes his style to his work with Eric Nadel and Dave O'Brien.[6] On December 26, 2021, he was a last minute substitution for Gus Johnson teaming with Aqib Talib for an NFL on FOX game in Seattle between the Chicago Bears and the Seattle Seahawks. Goldsmith has yet to win the Washington State Sportscaster of the Year award, three times losing out to famed Mariners Broadcaster Dave Sims.[9] In January 2023 Goldsmith elected to remain with the Mariners after being the St. Louis Cardinals' top candidate for their lead TV job.[10] During a 2023 Spring Training interview Goldsmith's broadcast partner Gary Hill revealed that Goldsmith plans to debut the catchphrase "How do you do?!" for big calls during the season.[11]
