Ken Griffey Sr. is a former MLB outfielder who played professionally from 1973-1991 with the Cincinnati Reds (1973-1981, 1988-1990), New York Yankees (1982-1986), Atlanta Braves (1986-1988) and Seattle Mariners (1990-1991). A member of the Reds Hall of Fame, Griffey played an integral role in the “Big Red Machine” era of Cincinnati baseball along with teammates Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, Joe Morgan, Tony Perez and George Foster that saw the Reds win back-to-back World Series titles in 1975 and 1976.

The 1975 season saw Griffey post a .305 batting average while in 1976, he earned his first All-Star selection, hitting .336, a career-high. That season, he placed eighth in NL MVP voting. In 1980, Griffey was again named an All-Star as he posted a .294 batting average, hit 13 homers and drove-in 85 runs. He went on to earn All-Star Game MVP honors that season. In his career, Griffey recorded 2,143 hits with 152 home runs and a batting average of .296.

Together with his son Ken Griffey Jr., the two became the first father-son duo to hit back-to-back home runs when they achieved the feat while playing together for Seattle. After his playing days, Griffey served as a coach and manager in the Reds organization with the Dayton Dragons and Bakersfield Blaze. In 2014, he wrote a memoir, Big Red: Baseball, Fatherhood and My Life in the Big Red Machine.
