Seattle Mariner Ken Griffey Jr. leaps and stretches for this fly ball to right center field at the Kingdome.
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.
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.
