Ken Griffey Jr. to be Inducted Into Mariners Hall of Fame

Easily the face of the Seattle Mariners franchise during their 35-plus year history and one of the greatest all-around players of his generation, “The Kid” is scheduled to be inducted into the Seattle Mariners Hall Of Fame.
The ceremony is slated for Saturday, August 10th, 2013 when the Mariners take on the (former Seattle Pilots) Milwaukee Brewers.

Griffey will join the likes of Alvin Davis, Dave Niehaus (R.I.P.), Jay Buhner, Edgar Martinez, Dan Wilson and Randy Johnson in the M’s Hall.

According to the Mariners press guide, to be eligible for selection, “a player must have been active in a Mariners uniform for at least five seasons and be retired as a player at least two years (although may be otherwise connected to baseball). In addition to a player’s impact on the field, other considerations for possible induction include his positive impact on the Northwest community outside of baseball and a player’s positive impact in enhancing the image of the Seattle Mariners and/or Major League Baseball.

No Mariners player has ever been inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, but that is almost assuredly going to end in 2015 when Griffey becomes eligible.
