The Kid with Juniors

Ken Griffey Jr. became instantly know as “the kid” and “junior” and it was no wonder. The 19 year old rookie center fielder for the 1989 Seattle Mariners enjoyed all the younger fans and routinely took time out to pose a photo with the  youthful Mariners fans.

Griffey Joins Griffey

On August 29, 1990 Ken Griffey Sr. joined his son by signing a free agent contact with the Seattle Mariners becoming the first father and son to play together on the same team. Sixteen days later the pair would again become a part of baseball lore by hitting back to back home runs in the first inning at the California Angels.

1995 Locker Room

The 1995 Seattle Mariners needed and extra day to win the American League West division title in 1995. They did so with a 9-1 home win over the California angels in front of 52,356 ecstatic fans in the Kingdome. Outfielders Ken Griffey, Jr. and Jay Buhner were equally ecstatic during a champagne drenching in the locker room following the game.
