Thank You Ken Griffey, Jr.
With the baseball world (and sports world in general) focused on Jim Joyce and Armando Galarraga, I want to take a moment and thank Ken Griffey, Jr. for over two decades of entertaining baseball. Junior will forever be remembered for his flawless swing and his spectacular catches in centerfield.
Unfortunately injuries derailed the latter part of his career. Despite his struggles it was nice to see him return to Seattle to finish his career. Would I have liked more of a fairytale ending for a player I like as much as Junior? Of course. I am happy that he has never been linked to performance enhancing drugs. He played the game the right way and he always had a smile.
