Griffey Takes His Place in Cooperstown


SEATTLE, Wa - One could argue that there was nobody better in baseball during the 1990's than Ken Griffey, Jr.

The Seattle Mariners' legend officially took his place in Baseball's Hall of Fame on Sunday.

During his 22 year career, Griffey hit 630 home runs, was a 13-time All-Star, earned ten Gold Gloves and seven Silver Slugger awards.

Griffey won the American League Most Valuable Player award in 1997 when he hit .304 with 56 home runs and 147 RBI.

Griffey was voted in to the Hall of Fame on the first ballot with a record vote of 99.3 percent.

He is the first to enter the hallowed halls in Cooperstown wearing a Seattle Mariners' cap.
