Goodbye, Kid

>> Wednesday, June 02, 2010

Ken Griffey Jr. has retired. It’s impossible to overstate Griffey’s importance to Seattle baseball, or the excitement in the Northwest over the idea of having a genuine Hall of Famer to watch. His years in Cincinnati were less distinguished, of course, and his coda in Seattle lasted just a touch too long. For my part, he reinvigorated my enthusiasm in baseball after a hiatus of six or so years following Donnie Moore’s failure in the 1986 ALCS.

Thank you, Ken. You were my all-time favorite baseball player. Enjoy your retirement.

one of the saddest injury stories in baseball history; when he was young and healthy i thought "no way he doesn't beat aaron's record."
