Wears Scarlet-colored glasses
I just saw somewhere that Craig Griffey, brother of Ken, played football for us. I looked on the letterwinners list and saw that indeed, Craig Griffey did earn a letter in 1990. Can anyone tell me anything about him, like what position he played? I know he played in the minors with Seattle so did he leave early to persue baseball, etc? Assuming of course this is the same Craig Griffey, which would only make sense(Griffey was from Cinci where his dad played with the Reds, obviously an athletic family, and Griffey's not exactly Smith or Johnson). Thanks.
If I remember correctly, Craig was pretty much a "courtesy" pick of the Mariners, had to be like a 40th round pick or so. He kicked around in their system for a few years then just gave it up. He saw the writing on the wall.
