(RELEASE) - Former MLB standout Ken Griffey Jr. is spotlighted on the regional cover of Sports Illustrated as part of SI’s “Where Are They Now” annual feature and ahead of his induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
HIGHLIGHTS FROM SI’S INTERVIEW WITH KEN GRIFFEY JR.:
From Reiter’s article, Griffey talks about his golf experience: - "He plays golf — a lot of golf. He had recently returned from a four-day, 121-hole trip to Bandon Dunes, in Oregon. He’s yet to play Augusta, but not because of its exclusivity. “I can get there,” he says. "I just ain’t had a chance to go."
- Griffey Jr. talked to SI about his golf handicap: “I’m a 13 … Am I a 13? No. But I want you to write that… [Later, he admits] I’m a three. But when you write this, it’s gotta be a 13.” [The USGA indicates that he is a three.]
- Griffey Jr. spoke to why he’s reluctant to swing a baseball bat these days: “The whole thing is, my baseball swing messes up my golf swing … It’ll take me literally three days to get it back."
