Ken Griffey, Jr. retires from Seattle Mariners | Seattle sports photographer

Posted in assignment work, Downtown Seattle, editorial work, sports, Washington by bermanphotos on June 2, 2010

Today, The Seattle Mariners’ Ken Griffey, Jr. announced his retirement from baseball at age 40. Growing up, Griffey was always my favorite player, and I can distinctly recall him hitting a home run at the only game I ever attended at the dearly-departed Kingdome. They lit off fireworks, filling the whole stadium with a smokey haze. Griffey will be missed — he, along with the rest of the pinnacle team, helped to put Seattle on the map.

Below, here is one of my favorite photos of Ken Griffey, Jr. that I made while interning at The Seattle Post-Intelligencer this past spring-summer.
