List of Ken Griffey Jr. quotes.

When I was 16, I was working at Queen City Speedway. I made $84 and change one week, then my mama told me to quit to concentrate on baseball.


As you get older, stay around, you just go out and have fun and don't worry if you hit them out. I'm not trying to hit it out, just trying to get good contact.


We just tried to make a bad situation a little better.
