Earlier this morning, I had the distinct pleasure to get to chat with Ken Griffey, Sr. as he is promoting his new book Big Red: Baseball, Fatherhood and My Life in the Big Red Machine.

I asked Senior about his current life in the game of baseball, what made Hall of Fame manager Sparky Anderson so successful, what he remembered most while in attendance at his son’s – Ken Griffey, Jr.induction into the Seattle Mariners Hall of Fame last year, and what advice he had for parents and kids alike trying to develop successful young players.

He also spoke about why he thinks there are fewer African-Americans than ever playing at the Major League level since the color barrier was broken by Jackie Robinson and whether or not he thinks Pete Rose should be included in the Hall of Fame.

You can purchase his book by clicking here and listen to my entire interview with him here:
