KEN GRIFFEY JR
HR # 6 , 2ND ROUND
The 1999 home run derby is most remembered for the
titanic blasts off the bat of McGwire . But it was in fact
Griffey who went on to win the eventwith some mighty blasts
of his own . Outlasting Sosa, Garciaparra , Burnitz , Bagwell , Walker...
Prior to the start , someone had the great idea of marking
all of the derby balls with the players initials, thinking many
would end up in the netting over the Green Monster and
could then be identified later as to who hit them .
This baseball was hit into deep left center into the netting where
it sat out of reach until long after the derby was over. It stuck in such a
perfect place of the netting onthe outer part of the wallthat the person who
was in charge of collecting them not only couldn't reach it , he couldn't even see it :)
After the crowds and police left we threw everything from tennis balls ,
baseballs ..etc...shoes !, until it was finally was dislodged from its perch.:)
Unlike the dozen other balls that were fought overby the throngs of fans on
Lansdowne street , this one just fell harmlessly to the ground :)
