Former Mariners Pitcher, Now Pippins Coach and Yakima Native Bob Wells Once Got Taken Yard By Ken Griffey, Jr.
Ken Griffey, Jr. is scheduled to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame this Sunday. All week long tributes to "The Kid" have been circulating with tons of audio and video highlights from days gone by. Even as a lifelong fan who remembers when George Kenneth broke into the big leagues (I was a senior at West Valley High School) there have been a few clips that I had forgotten about.
Yesterday ROOT Sports aired a clip of one of Junior's 630 career home runs that occurred in the old Metrodome in Minneapolis. I had to rewind my DVR a couple of times before I was sure that the tater was served up by Yakima native and former Mariners pitcher and current Yakima Valley Pippins coach Bob Wells.
Am I right?
