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.
