Griffey is coming back to Seattle!

Me and my Griffey card collection!Ken Griffey Jr. has been my favorite baseball player since he started with Seattle back in ’89. Even when he left Seattle, I still really liked him and wished him well. I have a HUGE Griffey baseball card collection that I will probably never let go of. When he played against Seattle last year and was welcomed back with such open arms, he talked about how he would love to come back here. I was in full support of him coming back even if it seems like many were against it or thought it would be a silly move. But he NEEDS to be in Seattle. The fans love him. He can still play a few years in the outfield and then he can take over at DH forever. Well today made my day (other than the face that Mariella Grace Di Loreto was born!!!!)! Griffey selects Seattle as best match: Future Hall of Famer returning to where storied career began. How awesome! I am super glad to see him back and really look forward to going to some games this year!

    Oh my! I can’t express how excited I am! I know he won’t be the Jr he was back then, but culturally he is the same Griffey. :) I was asking some of my students yesterday if they knew who Griffey was. They said no… asked them what year they were born in…. 97. Right. I felt old. Ha.
