So Long Kid

As I'm sure most have heard Ken Griffey Jr retired today at the age of 40 from the Seattle Mariners. Griffey started his career in 1997 at the age of 19 and came full circle back to the Mariners to finish. He ends up 5th on the all-time home run list with 630 in 22 seasons. He collected 10 Gold Glove awards and one MVP, but sadly no appearance in a World Series. He's the one true home run hitter of this era not to ever be questioned if he cheated or not. I'm sad to say I never had the privilege to see Griffey play and sadly won't get the chance now. This may not have been a good season for him but it will on no way tarnish his stellar career. So Mr. Griffey...enjoy your retirement and thank you for all the great memories you've left behind and we'll see you in the Hall.
