Outfielder, 2000-2008. Inducted 2014.
One of the most exciting players of his generation at the time of his trade to the Reds, Griffey was an All-Star in three of his eight season with Cincinnati. Though injuries kept him from matching his early career feats of offense and defense, Griffey hit 210 home runs while with the Reds, including his 500th and 600th. His best season with Cincinnati was 2005, when he batted .301 and hit 35 home runs and 30 doubles en route to the NL Comeback Player of the Year award. As the son of Big Red Machine outfielder Ken Griffey, he is the first second generation member of the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame.
