There is absolutely no reason for this video right now.
But do you ever need a reason to view a Ken Griffey Jr highlight reel? Most definitely not. We’re less than a year away from seeing Griffey Jr inducted into the Cooperstown Hall of Fame. This video is from his induction into the Mariners Hall of Fame a few years ago.
Greatest of all time is a debate that will never come to a conclusion. Look at his career numbers you’ll say no. But watching him play throughout the 90s you might consider it. ESPN wrote a piece in 2010 about how Griffey would have ended up had he been ableto stay healthy (had he taken steroids like everyone else 😉 )
22 seasons in the bigs, Ken Griffey Jr had 630 home runs. My dude spent 12 different stints on the DL. ESPN published a piece years back doing their best to project Griffey’s career stats had he stayed off the DL and it’s quite the interesting read. You can check it out here.
They projected that Griffey would have finished with about 777 home runs had he stayed off the DL completely, but that’s a bit unrealistic. So they left room for some time on the DL not as drastic as the time he actually spent, and still came up with 730-755 career homers. Not to mention, if he ever came that close to Bonds’ record, he would have likely played a couple more years?
