Ken Griffey Jr Is A Defensive Master

Ken Griffey Jr Is A Defensive Master

If anyone made playing the outfield cool, it was Ken Griffey Jr.

While he was never classified as ‘the fastest guy on the team’, Griffey definitely had a knack for getting to the ball and putting his body on the line in the process if needed.  With tons of running grabs, shoe-string catches, and over-the-head acrobatic plays to his credit, Ken Griffey Jr. earned each of the 10 Gold Glove Awards he won during his career.

A very well-rounded player, Griffey did not have the best arm, best feet, or best anything.  Well, there is one exception – he had the best desire!  Griffey did anything and everything to routinely make plays in the outfield.  His play won the hearts of fans across the country as they saw a player that just simply loved to play baseball!!!

Thank you for making it fun for us!!
