27 Years Ago--Ken Griffey And Ken Griffey, Jr In Same Line Up

It's hard to believe that it has been 27 years but on August 31st, 1990, the Seattle Mariners became the first team in baseball history to have a father and son on the same team at the same time.  Veteran Ken Griffey, Sr. joined the Seattle Mariners after being cut by the Cincinnati Reds.  Of course, Ken Griffey, Jr was already a second year star for the club.   The two only played together for a month, but they would later hit back to back homeruns for the team.  Ken Griffey, Sr would retire the next year, however big things were ahead for Junior who is now enshrined in Baseball's Hall Of Fame.
