We say happy # 47 to Ken Griffey, perhaps the best player of the last 25 years.
Ken broke with Seattle in 1989 at age 19. He was awesome in the 1990′s winning 3 HR titles and several seasons with 140-plus RBI’s. Injuries caught up with him in Cincinatti and never had the super years that he had in Seattle.
Griffey retired with 630 HR & 1,836 RBI. He was also an amazing center fielder!
