Griffey One Day Away From Hall of Fame (AUDIO)
I can't wait for tomorrow: A great career culminates in Cooperstown as Ken Griffey Jr. is set to be enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Yes, yes, I know that Mike Piazza is going into the Hall also, but I grew up a fan of Griffey living in Seattle.
Junior is the Gold Standard for people between 21 and 35. The perfect swing, the black bat, the follow through, the great catches in the outfield, the smile, the backwards hat: Junior was the man.
To get the Seattle perspective on Griffey's induction, we brought in Bob Stelton of ESPN 710 in Seattle. He told us how the city is feeling, what it was like to watch Griffey in action, how Griffey's relationship with the city has evolved over the years and we took some guesses as to how Griffey's speech would be.
