I remember it vividly. Ken Griffey Jr. smashed a ball during the 1993 Home Run Derby that hit the warehouse at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Stepping to the plate with his hat on backwards, “The Kid” earned himself a plaque that to this day marks the feat.
Seriously, there’s a plaque on the warehouse for a player who didn’t even play for the Orioles. But that’s only one thing of a zillion things that make Ken Griffey Jr’s career so special.
