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!!
