Griffey, Jr. Is G.O.A.T. In Baseball – Huffington Post

Hall of Fame outfielder, Reggie Jackson once said about Griffey, “We love Ken Griffey, Jr. because he is everything we would like to be. He’s young, he’s good-looking, he’s got the best smile in the world, and he’s a heroic athlete. There hasn’t been anyone like that since…Reggie Jackson.” In 2000, Griffey was traded to his hometown Reds. The president of his former team said about the trade, “We gave up Babe Ruth.” His new general manager, Jim Bowden had equally high praise saying, “February 10, 2000, will go down in Reds history and baseball history as the night when one of the biggest trades in the history of our sport took place when the Michael Jordan of baseball came home to Cincinnati.”
