"I stand up here humbled and overwhelmed. I can't describe how it feels. Thirteen years with the Seattle Mariners ... from the day I got drafted, Seattle, Washington, has been a big part of my life. I'm going to leave you with one thing. In 22 years, I learned that one team will treat you the best, and that's your first team. I'm damn proud to be a Seattle Mariner."
— Hall of Famer Ken Griffey, Jr.
