Watch Ken Griffey Jr. find out he made Hall history, Mike Piazza get call of his dreams
Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza had moments on Wednesday it’s safe to assume they will never forgot.
Both got phone calls from the baseball Hall of Fame officially welcoming them to Cooperstown.
Griffey Jr. was at home and had almost no words when he received the phone call. All he could muster was "thank you" when he was told he received 99.3 percent of the votes, more than any player ever. Oh, and he also admitted to a few nerves. Here’s the video of Griffey’s call:
Piazza was far more emotional, fighting back tears and saying how much this means to him because of how much he respects the history of baseball.
Congrats to both Griffey Jr. and Piazza.
