  • I wish I could talk to Grifffey. A lot of Cincinnati fans were hard on him, but not everyone feels that way. I have a ton of respect for what he did in Cincy. He never gave up. He kept getting knocked down and kept getting back up. He didn't have to. He could have retired after the 98 season and been a HOFer. He did it for the love of the game. I always cheered for Griffey, no matter the year. I know he got a hard time from media and some fans, but his time in Cincy also meant a lot to a lot of people, myself included.

  • The two athletes that I looked up to the were Ken Griffey Jr. and Barry Bonds, mainly because we are all southpaws and baseball is my favorite sport to play. They were the two styles that I emulated the most, Bonds having that short compact swing and Griffey with the equally smooth swing as me (lol)! On the defense side of things they were as equally as spectacular. My favorite all around baseball players because as I stated earlier, we are all lefties. Now that I see that they interviewed Griffey, I would like to see them interview Bonds. Honestly, I doubt that Bonds will accept an interview, because he has never really been much of a social friendly person especially with the media!

  • I'm just glad Junior never let his ego get in the way and took PEDS.He let his natural talent speak for him.I wish Bonds did the same and not tarnish his legacy.If I ever find out Griffey or Jeter did PEDS, then I'll look at EVERYBODY from that era sideways.Both those guys have my utmost respect.

  • Much love cousin was the biggest junior fan outside of people in seattle and cincy. He died in 2006 and was buried in dearborn michigan with both griffey seattle and cincy jerseys in his casket. Some things r bigger than sports he never met him but best believe when he played our tigers he was there to watch the kid play all out. Thanks to him for always playin the game full tilt balls out in the field and at the plate!
