The Mariners’ “The Peanut Man” Passes

I remember being at an M’s game for Father’s Day and he tossed a bag behind the back with a high arch that carried at least 30 plus feet and perfectly hit my nephew’s glove. MY OH MY! God Speed Rick ” The Peanut Man”! Toss a bag to Dave.

Rick Kaminski, known to Mariners fans for years simply as “The Peanut Man,” passed away Wednesday at the age of 67.

Candi Mindt-Keener, Kaminski’s partner, said the well-known vendor at Mariners games died overnight at Evergreen Medical Center due to complications from a brain aneurysm.

Kaminski had worked at Mariners games at the Kingdome and Safeco Field since 1977.

Mariners president Chuck Armstrong said in a statement.

“Rick was a fixture at Seattle sporting events for as long as I can remember,” Armstrong said. “His speed and accuracy with a bag of peanuts was matched by his quick wit and smile. He always seemed happy to see you, even if he was meeting you for the first time.

“Rick loved what he did and the fans loved him for it. He will be sorely missed at Safeco Field as well as Peoria, Ariz., where he got in his ‘Spring Training’ along with everyone else.”
