Ken Griffey Jr. To Announce Retirement

Via: ESPN
Seattle Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu says Ken Griffey Jr. is retiring.

Wakamatsu made the announcement before Wednesday night's game against Minnesota. Griffey's retirement is effective immediately.

The 40-year-old Griffey was one of baseball's greatest players before injuries began to take their toll. The perennial All-Star outfielder ranks fifth on the career home run list with 630.

Griffey was hitting only .184 this season and recently went a week without playing.
Goodbye Seattle, hello Cooperstown.

Oh the good 'ol days for Seattle baseball. Although I was only four years old at the time I still remember the ending to this game like it was yesterday. My love for baseball began after this game as did my love for the Mariners. So long Junior.
