George Kenneth Griffey Jr., nicknamed "Junior" and "the Kid"
Griffey signed lucrative deals with companies of international prominence like Nike and Nintendo; his popularity reflected well upon MLB and is credited by some with helping restore its image after the 1994 labor dispute. Griffey is one of only 29 players in baseball history to date to have appeared in major league games in four different calendar decades.
Griffey is the son of former MLB player Ken Griffey Sr. and the father of National Football League player Trey Griffey.
