Griffey Will Be Enshrined In Baseball Hall Of Fame

Ken Griffey, Jr, one of the greatest all around baseball players and a man credited to saving baseball in Seattle, is now a Hall Of Famer. Griffey, who made hitting home runs look easy and was know for breathtaking catches playing centerfield, was elected with over 99 per cent of the vote, the highest ever. 
Griffey was brought up to play for the M's at 19 and was really the first player to bring national attention to Seattle baseball. He sometimes upset fans, with reported tantrums on various issues and with wanting and receiving a trade to his home town Cincinnati Reds.  His baseball career eventually brought him back to Seattle, his skills at the time were quite diminished and he would retire the next year.
