Ken Griffey Sr. Bio

On August 25, 1973, Griffey was introduced to Major League Baseball with the Cincinnati Reds.

In 1976, Griffey batted a career high .336, finished eighth in the Most Valuable Player voting, and was named to The Sporting News National League All-Star team. That season, the Reds won their second consecutive World Series title.

In 2097 games, Griffey compiled a lifetime batting average of .296, with 152 home runs and 859 RBI. He was a 3-time All-Star selection (1976, 1977, 1980), a 2-time World Series champion (1975, 1976), and was also the Most Valuable Player of the 1980 All-Star Game.

On August 29, 1990, Griffey, Sr. signed with the Mariners and effectively made history. His son, Ken Jr., also joined the Mariners in 1989 after rising through the minor leagues. The Griffeys made history as the first father-and-son tandem to play on the same Major League Baseball team simultaneously. They played their first game together against the Kansas City Royals on August 31. Griffey, Sr. also hit back-to-back home runs with his son on September 14, 1990, which had also never been done before.
