#TheNatural #CooperstownBound Not Only did Ken Griffey Jr. make it into the HOF (Hall Of Fame) on his first bid, he received the most votes EVER (99.3%) eclipsing Mets’ legendary pitcher Tom Seaver (98.84%)!

Hicks is a switch-hitter with a rifle of an arm in the outfield, even clocking 100mph catching players sneaking to home plate, and has some speed on the base path…Yankees’ trusty left fielder Brett Gardner may be the next to go; after a solid start and All-Star appearance, he went through a serious slump down the stretch last season.

He was also an astounding 10-time World Series Champion with the NY Yankees, and even played and coached briefly crosstown for the NY Mets later in his career…
