Safeco Field is the house that Junior built. Without this man Seattle wouldn’t have a baseball team. There was a time not too long ago that the future of the Mariners was in serious doubt. That is, until the high-flying, backward hat wearing superstar emerged. As the best player ever to wear a Mariners uniform and a first ballot hall of famer, it only seems right that The Kid was immortalized today when his statue was unveiled on the corner of Edgar and Dave. Thank you for all you’ve done for our team and our city. The legend of Ken Griffey Junior will live on forever.
