Todd E. Lyons Blog: My Son and I Visit Ken Griffey, Jr.
Yesterday, an old co-worker of mine treated me to a matinee` at Safeco Field. While the Mariners took another one on the chin at the hands of the Texas Rangers (12-4), my son Drew and I had a great time.
When the game ended, we went to the Seattle Mariners Hall of Fame to go see the newest display and plaque featuring Ken Griffey, Jr. Junior was inducted into the M's Hall just a couple of weeks ago at another game I attended.
The lone highlight for M's fans was seeing 3B Kyle Seager blast a home run off the 'Hit It Here' cafe`.
Regardless of the outcome of the game, it was a great day just being a dad with my son watching our favorite sport together while I got to re-live some of my childhood and remember when my dad took me to games.
