The Baseball Writers’ Association of America has elected the two newest members to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Outfielder Ken Griffey Jr. and catcher Mike Piazza are regarded as some of the best to ever play their positions, but their paths to Cooperstown couldn’t have been more different.
Griffey is the son of a big leaguer and a former first overall pick that dazzled scouts as a teen. He lived up to the hype, winning 10 Gold Gloves and mashing 630 home runs, the sixth most all time.
