You may not care for the sport of baseball (I very much do) but it's hard to deny the indelible effects of Ken Griffey Jr. on both baseball in Seattle and on the 90's themselves. For achievements such as turning the backwards cap trending*, debuting these forward-thinking jerseys and straight up sticking it to the classical baseball establishment, Griffey was granted a plaque in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Oh, and most importantly, he's pushing for a similar honor to the best player to ever play his position: Edgar Martinez.
