Ken Griffey Jr. is one of baseball's greats and more than deserving of a Hall of Fame induction. But is he one of baseball's "greatest" greats?
On Wednesday, Griffey has a chance to become the first player unanimously inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. He would surpass pitcher Tom Seaver, who has the all-time highest percentage of votes (98.84 percent) for Hall of Fame induction.
Third on that list overall is legendary Orioles third baseman Cal Ripken Jr. at 98.53 percent, the highest percentage for any position player.
