Cooperstown now has a Mariner . . . #JrHoF

So many memories ~ Congratulations, Junior!

Junior’s speech was heartfelt, extremely emotional and full of obvious love for Seattle – even included a plug for ‘Gar for HoF 🙂 I will admit a tinge of surprise disappointment that he didn’t mention Lou Piniella or Dave Niehaus (iconic Mariners, in my mind).

All in all, it was a very special day for Jr and for the Mariners and their fans ❤

Here’s a little collection of tweets to help the stories live forever in our memories . . .

 

Though they stood at the same position today ~ behind the HoF podium ~ curious that they represent opposite ends of the baseball spectrum, in terms of draft position . . .

Griffey was the first #1 draft pick to make it to the Hall and Piazza the lowest (1390) draftee to be enshrined ~ congrats to both on their esteemed careers.
