In a ceremony earlier today in front of the home plate entrance of SafeCo Field at the corner of Edgar Martinez Drive and Dave Niehaus Way, the Seattle Mariners unveiled a life-sized bronze statue of the greatest player in the club’s 40-year history – Ken Griffey, Jr.

Griffey, who had his jersey number 24 retired by the team following his induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame last July, was on hand for the unveiling during an outdoor ceremony emceed by M’s radio broadcaster Rick Rizzs.

The platform on which the statue sits is inscribed as follows:
“ONE OF THE GREATEST PLAYERS IN BASEBALL HISTORY, “THE KID” WAS THE FACE OF THE GAME FOR OVER TWO DECADES (1989 – 2010) AND WAS INDUCTED AS A MARINER INTO THE NATIONAL BASEBALL HALL OF FAME ON JULY 24, 2016″

Fans attending tomorrow night’s game will receive a miniature replica of the statue, created by artist Lou Cella. Cella also forged the bronze statue of Mariners Hall of Fame radio broadcaster Dave Niehaus which is located inside SafeCo Field.
