Jason Kipnis Ran Into Ken Griffey Jr, and Didn’t Recognize Him


The Cleveland Indians arrived in Seattle for a 3 game set vs the Mariners this week. Jason Kipnis told a funny story on twitter about what happened when he first arrived at Safeco Field.

First off how do you not recognize the greatest of all time? Especially being your childhood idol. I guess if you’re in that awkward situation where you bump into someone you don’t know and then they tell a joke and you have to awkwardly laugh to prevent more awkwardness…It’s kinda funny he called him a “big dude” though. I don’t think he’s wrong on that.

Yea definitely not a small guy anymore, but shit. Cook some barbecue, hit some golf balls, and live your life how you want to as the record holder for first ballot hall of fame votes.
