Ichiro honors Ken Griffey Jr.
Seattle held a special ceremony Saturday night to induct the greatest player in Mariners history, #24 Ken Griffey Jr, into their Hall of Fame. This is just a preview of what we will see once he is eligible for the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2015.
Mariners’ players showed their respects to the Kid by turning their hats backward.
Ichiro Suzuki, one of Griffey’s biggest fan and former Mariner superstar, wasn’t able to attend the celebration; but it didn’t stop him from making a video tribute. Ichiro shows his gratitude and admiration toward Ken Griffey Jr. Take a look:

Did he just call Junior, George! Priceless! A sense of humor from Ichiro that fans never get to see. Congrats to George Kenneth Griffey Jr. on your retired jersey. Well said Ichiro!
