"Well, my dad taught me that there's three parts. There's hitting, there's defense, and there's baserunning. And as long as you keep those three separated, you're going to be a good player. I mean, you can't take your defense on the bases, you can't take your hitting to the field, and you can't take your baserunning at the plate. But defense, is number one." - Ken Griffey, Jr. (ESPN, Behind The Lines Interview, 2008) [ Ken Griffey, Jr. Quotes ]

Ken Griffey, Jr. was easily one of the most prolific home run hitters in baseball history, hitting 630 of them across his Hall of Fame career [ Top 1,000 ] - with a swing so smooth and sweet, it almost appeared effortless to The Kid . Several of those 630 homers were historic, but eight of them once came in eight consecutive games, tying an incredibly rare Major League record matched previously by Dale Long (1956) and Don Mattingly (1987). [ Consecutive Home Run Records ]
