This photo appeared in the April 1982 issue of Sport Magazine.
I’m not sure why, but it stuck with me. I was 9-years old, a new subscriber, and the image screamed to me, “Cool. So, so, so, so cool …”
From that moment on, Ken Griffey, Sr. was my favorite ballplayer. I bought all his cards, cheered for him from the stands. Still, to this day, he’s my guy.
Just from a photograph.
