Ken Griffey Jr. Gives Tame Response To Hall Of Fame Phone Call (Video)

Ken Griffey Jr. reacted to his call from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America informing him of his National Baseball Hall of Fame election like a man who already knew his fate.

Griffey, unsurprisingly, was among two players (Mike Piazza was the other) elected to the class of 2016. He also made history by receiving a record 99.32 percent of the vote. Just three voters left him off their ballot.

Upon hearing this historic feat, Griffey said, “OK, now I’m a little nervous, now,” as his family cheered in the background.

Check out Griffey’s reaction in the tweet below.
