OTD In Sports History June 20th: Ken Griffey Jr Hits Number 500

On this day in sports History June 20th, 2004 Ken Griffey Jr hit his 500th home run. This was bitter sweet for me as I have always been a huge Ken Griffey Jr fan (duh I’m from Seattle). Jr was the youngest to ever hit 400 home runs but injuries had him being the 8th fastest to hit 500 home runs. But he did do it on father’s day with his dad in the stands. Griffey was and will always be my favorite baseball player but I just wish he did this in a Seattle Mariners uniform.
