The first No. 1 overall pick in the MLB Draft to be elected to the Hall of Fame, Ken Griffey Jr. lived up to expectations by becoming one of the best all-around players in the game’s history. Born on Hall of Famer Stan Musial’s birthday in Musial’s hometown of Donora, Pa., Griffey followed his father, Ken Griffey Sr., to the big leagues. He quickly revived the Mariners franchise with power at the plate, grace in center field and charisma that sparkled throughout the baseball world. By the end of his 22-year big league career, Griffey had totaled 630 home runs, 13 All-Star Game selections, 10 Gold Glove Awards and the 1997 American League MVP Award.
From 62nd round draft pick to Cooperstown, Mike Piazza traveled a road none had taken. When he retired, Piazza could lay claim to being one of the greatest hitting catchers in history. Piazza burst on the scene in 1993, winning National League Rookie of the Year honors after hitting .318 with 35 home runs and 112 RBI. After five stellar seasons with the Dodgers that included two runner-up finishes in the NL Most Valuable Player Award voting, Piazza was traded to the Marlins and then to the Mets, where he led New York to the 2000 National League pennant. In 16 big league seasons, Piazza hit 427 home runs – including a record 396 as a catcher. He was named to 12 All-Star Games and won 10 Silver Slugger Awards.
