Look how skinny he was then. I didn't realize how much weight he had put on over the years. I guess it happens to the best of us.

The really good part of this trick - the part with the tank full of sharks with laser beams on their freaking heads - was cut out of this picture.



I remember seeing those plays as they happened, wishing he was doing them in a Reds uniform. Still, I am very glad we have the guy.

Little do most know on that play IIRC...

May 26, 1995: At the Kingdome, Ken Griffey Jr. breaks two bones in his left wrist making a spectacular catch against the RF wall. He will miss 73 games but will return to play with a four inch metal plate attached to his wrist.

One of the 2006 Playstation baseball video games used this footage in their opening montage. It looks like a fantastic catch until you realize the reason Junior's glove ends up at a weird angle is because his wrist is shattered.

I suspected this was the play that broke his wrist. Thanks fr the background. ...

For the second time in the history of the universe, the Gods reached down from on high and assembled the most perfect baseball player known to mankind.

(The first time, of course, was Willie Mays.)

Born the son of a major league baseball player, Seattle's #24 would become the benchmark by which all subsequent baseball players for generations to come would be measured.

Dude, I'm invincible! I'll slam into this wall full speed, because I'm injury-proof! No disabled list for me, not now, not ever!
