Ken Griffey Jr.

It's a Baseball Day

Submitted by Roanman on Thu, 06/03/2010 - 14:36


Lost in all the hoopla surrounding the joyced up Galarraga perfect game is the retirement of Ken Griffey Jr.

A dead certain first ballot Hall of Fame inductee.

22 years in the major leagues.

 Fifth on the all time home run list with 630.

10 Golden Glove awards.

12 All-Star game appearances.

1992 All-Star game MVP.

1997 American League MVP.

Possibly more notable were his failures.

Failed to ever test positive for steroids, or other performance enhancing drugs.

Failed to ever receive a subpoena to testify before Congress.

Failed to ever be associated with BALCO, Jose Canseco or to show up in the Mitchell Report.



A class act, and a credit to the game of Baseball.
