Hall of Famer Griffey Jr. Credits Father

With his election to Baseball’s Hall of Fame, Ken Griffey Jr. reflected on how his father, Ken Griffey Sr., helped him prepare for a pro baseball career.  Junior had a good teacher since his father played for 19 seasons in the majors.  Junior recalled one of the early lessons he got from his father was about respect for the game.

The Griffey father-son combo make history when they appeared in the same game for the Seattle Mariners in 1991.
