“The Kid” just hit his 600th career home run off Marlins starting pitcher Mark Hendrickson. It’s funny cause there was a story on how he wasn’t going to give up the 600th. Oh well.
It looks like the Marlins will lose tonight but if there’s anything good about this game it’s that Zack Hample, ball lover…did not catch the Griffey Jr. home run ball. He tried (saw the video) and was near but could not come up with it and walked away cursing. Ah, good to know some things just work themselves out.
Congratulations to Ken Griffey Jr. but something tells me he’d be closing in on 800 if it weren’t for all the injuries.
