This Week's Sports Illustrated Regional Cover...Ken Griffey, Jr.

It's that time of the summer when Sports Illustrated does their annual two week Where are they now? cover.

⚾⚾⚾ One of the regional SI covers this week is of former big league outfielder Ken Griffey, Jr., who's getting ready for his induction in July into the Baseball Hall of Fame. 

                                     Sports Illustrated Cover, July 4-11, 2016 

Junior, in my opinion, watching baseball for 50 years, still has the most beautiful swing I've ever seen of any big league smooth! 

In January Junior was elected into the HOF with a BBWAA record 99.3% of the vote.

In what would be many stories, Junior first appeared on the cover of SI on May 7,1990.

I'm not sure how many covers Junior was on, but it was quite a few...

...we love when baseball gets the cover of SI, or any other magazine...until the next SI baseball cover... Play Ball!
