Junior Returns to Seattle

Brian and I saw the rubber game of the three game series between the Cincinnati Reds and the Seattle Mariners on Sunday, June 24th. The M’s won 3-2, despite Ken Griffey, Jr.’s two home runs. It was Junior’s triumphant return to Seattle having played for the M’s from 1989-1999. The “kid” as he was known back then brought back a lot of memories for me. As a “kid” myself I fondly remember those summer evenings spent in the Kingdome and even though I was living in Australia during the 1995 season, I still remember Junior’s smile on the bottom of that “dog pile” after beating the Yankees.
