Yakima Votes On New Name For Safeco Field — The Results May Surprise You

Recently, the Seattle Mariners announced that, following the 2018 season, their partnership with Safeco Insurance for the naming rights of the stadium will not be renewed.

We asked you, and listeners of 1460 ESPN Yakima and readers of ESPNYakima.com, what it should be named, if money were no object. We ran an online-only poll and offered up three of our own fairly logical and obvious choices but allowed for other suggestions and votes to be placed.

The results may surprise you. Then again, if you spend any time on the internet at all, you are abundantly aware of "trolls" who love to see openings such as this.

Here are our unscientific results:

Todd’s Take: Ken Griffey, Jr. Takes Fans Questions After Hall of Fame Induction [VIDEO]

I had a dream of mine come true this weekend when I was able to attend the 2016 National Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Cooperstown, New York to see Mike Piazza and Mariners great Ken Griffey, Jr. enter the Parthenon dedicated to the greats of the game.

While the ceremony itself on Sunday at the Clark Sports Center was certainly a highlight (being spotted by family and friends on the MLB Network's television coverage was cool too!) I think I may cherish the roundtable discussion the two players had with hall-of-fame writer Peter Gammons the following day at Doubleday Field. Unlike their humble and heartfelt speeches the day before, neither player broke down into tears this time as it was a much more casual and lighthearted conversation with many laughs.

Ken Griffey, Sr. Talks Baseball, Family on KATS

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.
