Ken Griffey Jr. officially became the first Mariner ever inducted the National Baseball Hall of Fame. And in classic Griffey fashion, his performance came from the heart.
In front of an estimated crowd of about 50,000, Griffey stopped to collect himself multiple times during his speech as he thanked his family, former teammates and mentors as well as Mariners fans.
“Out of my 22 years, I learned that only one team will treat you the best, and that’s your first team,” he said. “I’m damn proud to be a Seattle Mariner.”
