Re: Griffey to announce retirement
Great story from C. Trent:
Instead, I'll tell the story that I think says more about Griffey than any home run or catch can.
During spring training of 2008, my mother was diagnosed with colon cancer. I knew Griffey's mother had overcome colon cancer a couple of years before. So the day after I found out, I went up to him, "Ken, you got a sec?"
"What's up? What's wrong?" he asked me.
"Yesterday my mom was diagnosed with colon cancer," I said.
"Sit down," and then the first thing he did was give me his mother's phone number to pass on to my mother.
I miss Adam Dunn.
