Fielders Choice, short to second
That's the last we'll ever see of Griffey on the field as a player. He has retired.
I'm not going to pretend Griffey was a favorite of mine, or I rooted for him, but you can't deny he was one of the most exciting players of his era, and was certainly at the forefront of any baseball conversation at the beginning of the 90s, from his exciting plays in the field to his big bat to his video game to his appearance in Little Big League as something of a villain. It's a shame that this brilliant, likable player was never a factor in the postseason, and has his name on no major records. At least we'll have the memories, and he has the Hall of Fame.
