Today it was announced that Ken Griffey, Jr. has retired from Baseball. There wasn't any fanfare. No parades. No final tour. No going into the night with the accolades he deserves. He has just quietly announced that he is done.
For a guy who came into the league with more hoopla than Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper combined this seems quit unfitting. Not only did the talent on the field equal the hype, he surpassed it. If not for some injuries while in Cincinnati he could very well have been running up against every offensive record in the book.
Congratulations on a great career. We'll see you in the Hall of Fame.
