Ken Griffey Jr. has no love for the New York Yankees and on Sunday his reasoning became clear.
Griffey recounted a few stories from nearly 40 years ago when his father, Ken Griffey Sr., played for the Yankees during MLB Network’s documentary “Junior.”
It started when former Yankees manager Billy Martin had an employee tell Griffey Jr and his brother, Craig, to pipe down while near the Yankees clubhouse. Then, to add on, there was an incident at Yankee Stadium in the early 1980s when Griffey Jr. visited his dad in the team dugout.
Wow, Ken Griffey Jr. had a really damn good reason to never play for the Yankees.
