Episode Info

Episode Info:

Ken Griffey Jr. was the player of a generation. He had the most contagious smile in baseball history, one of the best pedigrees, one of the sweetest swings -- and was pictured on the most iconic baseball card of the last 50 years. Join us for a Fadeaway "mini-sode" as host Eric Enders takes a nostalgic trip through his childhood while examining Ken Griffey Jr.'s place in American culture. Hear about the famous 1989 Upper Deck card, listen to exclusive audio of Junior cracking jokes in the clubhouse, and find out why "The Catch," a home-run robbing grab from 1990, is the defining play of Griffey's career.
