Ichiro Honors Ken Griffey Jr. Before His Induction Into Mariners Hall Of Fame

Ken Griffey Jr. Ichiro SuzukiI was fortunate enough to attend Saturday’s special ceremony at Safeco Field in Seattle where the Mariners inducted Ken Griffey, Jr. in the team’s Hall of fame.
There were a number of surprises, including video messages from Ken’s son Trey (who is a football player at the University of Arizona) the only other player who could stake claim to the title of ‘Greatest center Fielder of All-Time’ Willie Mays, the great two-way sports star Bo Jackson and special message from former Mariner, and future Hall of Famer himself, Ichiro Suzuki.

He begins by refering to Griffey by his actual first name, George (Kenneth Griffey, Jr.) and turns his cap around in homage to “The Kid” as well as using broadcaster Dave Niehaus’s signature call, “My oh my!”

The Japanese Suzuki, who rarely did interviews or answered questions without speaking in hi native tongue during his tenure in Seattle, gave a heartfelt message to Griffey entirely in English.
