Ken Griffey Jr. Takes A Bow

Ken Griffey, Jr.

Ken Griffey Jr. has suddenly announced his retirement from Major League Baseball. A class act and one of the best players of our recent times:

  • Fifth on the all-time home run list with 630
  • MVP and 11-time Gold Glove winner.

Griffey Junior was the overall No. 1 draft pick in 1987 and played 22 years in the majors with the Seattle Mariners, Cincinnati Reds and Chicago White Sox. He hit a career AVG of .284 with 1,836 RBIs and also had the rare joy of playing on the same field with his dad as true baseball brothers.

Good Luck and Godspeed.
