Ken Griffey Jr.'s First Major League Hit

25 years to the date.

25 years ago today, one of the greatest to every play the game made his MLB debut. And in his first at-bat, 19-year-old Ken Griffey Jr. drove a double into the left-center gap, and never looked back.

It's crazy to think that it's been 25 years since one of the sweetest swings baseball has ever seen broke into the Majors.
