If the Seattle Mariners one day change their uniform and logo colors, then their 1993-born palette will be as strongly identified with Ken Griffey Jr. as the Seahawks’ old garb is with Steve Largent. Griffey played a huge role in making the perinneal cellar dwellers into contenders in the mid/late ’90s and though they failed to repeat on 1995’s miracle year the following season, ’96 was among Junior’s finest, with a 49-HR season foreshadowing three consecutive AL-leading totals to close out the decade. He crushed the ball that year, ‘ran for president’ and played some of the 90s best center field while wearing the Nike Air Griffey Max 1, which has returned with its Deep Emerald color renamed to the more familiar (at least at this point in history) Freshwater.
