Ken Griffey Jr.’s Zoom Background is the Ultimate Flex
Baseball Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. has always been the epitome of cool.
To this day, "The Kid" still has the greatest baseball swing of all time.
If you've ever listened to my show, you know my favorite baseball team is the New York Mets.
What you might not know is my favorite player baseball player of all time is Ken Griffey Jr.
As a kid of the 80s and 90s, it was nearly impossible not to love him. He was simultaneously the best and coolest player in the game.
Here is a photo (circa 1991) of me with my Mom, shortly before getting to see "The Kid" play in person.
The 13-time All-Star and 10-time Gold Glove Winner spoke to Matt Hladik recently via Zoom for an article from The Spun.
Griffey Jr. won 10 straight Gold Gloves from 1990 to ’99, and 9 of them can be seen in the trophy case behind him.
The ultimate flex.
Hladik's article is a great one and another reminder of why Griffey Jr. at 52 years old remains one of the coolest individuals in the world of sports.
I could watch this all day.
