24 Stories

24 StoriesThe story of Ken Griffey Jr. is one that may begin on the baseball field but often extends far beyond it. His imprint can be found throughout the community, in pop culture, among the current generation of Major League stars and beyond.

We’ve broken down several pieces of Junior’s legacy into, appropriately, 24 separate stories. As we celebrate Junior’s induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and count down the days to his number retirement at Safeco Field on August 6, we’ll be sharing these stories. There will be a new one each day, so be sure to check back often.

At the end of the day, 24 stories isn’t nearly enough to truly capture the legend that is Ken Griffey Jr., but like the Gold Glove center fielder himself, we’ll cover a lot of ground.

#1 – The One Call

Our countdown begins with Rick Rizzs remembering his favorite call out of Junior’s many heroics on the field. For Rizzs, it was Griffey scaling the wall in center field at old Yankee Stadium to rob Jesse Barfield of a home run on April 26, 1990.
