Griffey Returns, Could Visit Clinton?
The buzz around the Seattle Mariners today is all about Ken Griffey Jr., who announced his return to the organization as a special consultant. As you’ll read in the article posted on Mariners.com, part of Griffey’s responsibilities will include “visiting most of Seattle’s Minor League affiliates”.
Does that mean a Junior sighting in Clinton this summer? I for sure hope so. An interview with Griffey on this blog would rival my Paul Molitor conversation from 2009. If he does in fact come to Alliant Energy Field sometime this season, expect to hear about it on this blog and on LumberKings.com.
Unfortunately, we know if he does come here, it won’t be for a reunion with his father. Ken Griffey Sr. was the hitting coach for Dayton last year, but will not be back with them this year.
