The Seattle Mariners announced earlier today that they will induct Ken Griffey Jr. into their Hall of Fame this August. The ceremony will take place before the game on August 10th against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Griffey retired in 2010 but his stats don't lie, he was a phenomenal player on the diamond. He is a 13-time All-Star, 10-time Gold Glove winner, Seven-time Silver Slugger winner, he was a four-time American League home run leader, three-time MLB All-Star Home Run Derby champ and with 630 career home runs he lands at the #6 spot on the list of top MLB home run hitters.

Tickets are currently not available for this game but I'm sure it will be a SOLD OUT game. Congratulations to Ken Griffey Jr. and his induction into the Mariner's Hall of Fame.
