Happy Birthday Junior

Happy 43rd Birthday Junior! On this day in 1969, Ken Griffey Jr. was born in Donora, Pennsylvania.

And it is also the birthday of Hall of Famer Stan “The Man” Musial, who played 22 years with the St. Louis Cardinals. And get this, Musial was also born in Donora, the small suburb just outside of Pittsburgh. If you are doing the math at home, that’s 1,105 career Major League home runs between Griffey Jr. (630 HR) and Musial (475 HR).

Stan Musial and Ken Griffey Jr. were both born in Donora, PA on November 21. Griffey in 1969 and Musial in 1920.
