Ken Griffey Jr. spent New Year's Eve Day in Shreveport, La. watching his son Trey play wide receiver for the Arizona Wildcats in the AdvoCare V100 Bowl.
His son didn't disappoint as he caught three passes for 41 yards and two touchdowns in Arizona's 42-19 victory over Boston College.
Yup, the MLB legend has a son in college. We are now old.
That fact wasn't lost by anyone on Twitter.
