Griffey and Piazza’s HOF induction completes the 90’s comeback tour

We have a Clinton running for president, Blink 182 has a No.1 album, the Mariners have a potent offense and ulcer inducing bullpen, and the baseball world is talking about Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza again.

Ladies and gentlemen, the 90’s are back; all joking aside, we get two watch the two greatest players of an entire decade go into Cooperstown on Sunday, and that’s fantastic.

Piazza and Griffey were the big boppers of the 90’s. The two players combined from 622 home runs during the decade; and many of those home runs are for ever seared into the minds of the fans who saw them.

The home runs were their signature, the moment that they cemented the fact that they are indeed the best players of their generation.

Whenever these two guys walked up to the plate, fans expected them to do something great; a home run, a clutch single…just something. And that’s probably the true measure of a hall of famer.

A player who is just expected to do great things at the right time.

Like Piazza capping off a 10 run comeback in the bottom of the ninth with a walk off home run.
