It's been a tough day here in the Pacific Northwest.
The man who saved baseball in Seattle, the man who robbed more homeruns than I can count and the man whose smile could light up an airplane hanger is hanging up his cleats for the last time...and I think I'm still in denial about it.
Ken Griffey Jr. was one of the greatest players to ever play the game and I was fortunate enough to see him play in person a handful of times. He provided Mariners' fans with a lifetime of highlights and for that he will always have a special place in our hearts.
Goodbye Ken. I wish I could say more, but right now I just don't have the words. We'll never forget you and I'll never stop trying to track down every card every produced.
I guess today makes that goal a little easier...just don't tell that to my heart.
