Ken Griffey is Good at Following Instructions


picasion.com_c425ef58619a6491a4443a53af4ee6beDuring yesterday’s tilt against the Minnesota Twins, Ken Griffey Jr. went deep for the third time this year, and in the process won one lucky fan $25,000 thanks to hitting his homer into the Subway Hit it Here sign hanging in the Metrodome.

Of course, Griffey has practice at this sort of thing like in this commercial from his first tour with the Mariners.

That commercial is so old that he’s hitting balls out of the KINGDOME. Awesome.

Also, apologies on having to use an animated gif, but MLB still doesn’t allow anyone to share or embed their videos at all, which is nothing less of infuriating.

    Hmm…according to sources, no one gets the money. A Minnesota Twins player has to hit it off the sign for a fan to win the big cash.

      That’s just pure and unsportly favoritism. I did no research into that, I just assumed that since it so rarely happens Subway would be happy to give out the money. Companies like doing that right?
