Ken Griffey, Jr. became only the sixth player to hit 600 or more homeruns in a career on Monday night. It is a great accomplishment for a great player. Griffey has long been my favorite player. When he was traded to the Reds, I was already counting the championships. My favorite player on my favorite team…it doesn’t get much better than that. The years since the trade have not been kind to either Griffey or the Reds. However, it doesn’t change the fact that Griffey is one of the all time greats in baseball. He hasn’t gotten the hype or the playing time the past few years due to injuries. No matter. Griffey is a class act. I just hope he and the Reds can get another title before his playing days are over. Cheers to you Ken Griffey, Jr.

  1. Great Article. My favorite baseball player of all time is Ken Griffey Jr. Growing up in the lates 80s early 90s there was no one better than Junior. Even though I lived on the east coast and I am a die-hard Mets fan he was still my favorite player. And Even with all the injuries Griffey just hit his 600 HR Steriod Free, so in my book that makes him # 4 on the all time HR list. I hope he goes to a contender in the near future and gets his shot at a ring and maybe come back into the spotlight

  2. I would rather see him win with the Reds since they are my favorite team. But if not with Cincy then I hope he can get one somewhere before he hangs it up.
