Obviously, I’m not a professional photographer. So when the AP and Getty post their pics of Ken Griffey Jr. raising the 12th man flag, I will add them to this post.
It was still pretty cool. A few of us stood up there with him. And the applause was probably the loudest of the entire Seahawks game.
Junior was in good spirits. And did answer a few questions after the ceremony.
On the moves by the Mariners in the offseason …
“We’re going in the right direction,” Griffey said. “A couple of more wins, postseason, I don’t have anything planned until like early November. Hopefully we can have a lot of fun and continue on the path that we’re going.”
“This is going to be fun to watch. The people of Seattle should be really excited about what’s going on.”
On whether or not Edgar Martinez should be in the hall of fame.
“He should go. There is no doubt in my mind. He is the dominant DH,” Griffey said. “He’s a baseball player. It doesn’t matter that he’s a DH, you still have to go out and do your job and he did it at the highest level than anybody for 10, 15 years.”
