Legacy of a Legend

So a few days ago the 2nd greatest baseball player of all-time and my favorite player decided to retire. Ken Griffey Jr was so influential on black youth and their participation in the sport. He was ground breaking to the sport as an athlete as well as a marketing tool. He is not the Michael Jordan of baseball but Michael Jordan is the Ken Griffey Jr of basketball.There will never be another baseball player of his caliber and as a tribute Ive chosen my favorite signature shoe of his,the Air Griffey Max 3. Even though i was only 7 yrs old it was love at first sight and I begged my pops to buy them, from the crooked lases to the strap these shoes were evolutionary. I wore them until the soles fell off! ha
