RIP Hiroshi Yamauchi (1927-2013)

Hiroshi Yamauchi, who was the President of Nintendo from 1949 to 2002 (and oversaw Nintendo's transformation into the company we know today), has died.

(Tip of the cap to baseball writer Buster Olney, who wrote about Yamauchi's death in the context of the latter's never having attended a Mariners baseball game even though he was their majority owner.)
