Default Sources: Griffey chooses Mariners

Sources: Griffey chooses Mariners

By Jerry Crasnick

Ken Griffey Jr. is returning to Seattle.

The future Hall of Famer informed the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday that he's returning to the city where he carved out a Hall of Fame career as a perennial All-Star in the 1990s.

Two baseball sources said that Griffey made his decision after two days of debating between Atlanta, which is close to his home in Orlando, Fla., and Seattle, where he's been a fan favorite since breaking in with the Mariners as a 19-year-old phenom in 1989.

The contract is for one year and is believed to be worth $2 million in base salary, plus incentives, The Associated Press reported.

Really nice story to see Kid Griffey return to his first MLB home. I wish him all the best in the twilight of his career. Still the most beautiful swing in the game...

HibachiDG is on a distinguished road

I like seeing him go to Seattle as well. Probably won't make that huge an impact, but still.
