When the Mariners had to do the unthinkable and trade Ken Griffey, Jr, they acquired a man very few people around here had heard of. Mike Cameron arrived from the Reds and proved that he was a great player himself making spectacular catches and driving balls out of the park. He quickly won over the hearts of Mariner fans like myself.
Last year Cameron left the Mariners and joined the New York Mets. I was sorry to hear that he was injured today as he collided with Centerfielder Carlos Beltran as they tried to catch a fly ball. Mike suffered a broken nose and both cheekbones were also broken. He had to be taken to the hospital, Beltran left the game but was uninjured. I wanted to take the time to wish Mike Cameron a speedy recovery!
