by A-Fraud on hitting his 630 home run.
"....Griff is special to me because we came up together," Rodriguez said. "He was a teammate, he was a brother and a mentor all rolled in one. It was a special day for me..."
Griffey came into the league in 1989 and was a star, gold glove and a kid with a great smile. He even played with his dad during his second season and third season with Mariners. A-Fraud was 15 and 16 years old.
Mariners drafted A-Fraud in 1993 and he almost did not sign the contract for the Mariners and did have a letter of intent with University of Miami. He played his first game July 8th 1994 and we then had the strike August 12, 1994. I have tickets for a game in the Kingdome that August somewhere, but the Mariners ended a 20 game road trip on that August day. He played in those last games. He also played a few games in 1995.
How did Griff and A-Rod come up together?? Is he re-writing history? Terrible with math. Or the two or three drugs he started taking in high school, minors or majors starting to impact his thinking??
