Cecil Whig - - INSIDEBASEBALL -

The Mariners se­lect Ken Grif­fey Jr. with the first over­all pick of the 1987 draft. Grif­fey is eas­ily the best player ever se­lected with the first over­all pick, bash­ing 630 ca­reer home runs, hit­ting .284/.370/.538 and win­ning 10 Gold Gloves in spite of an in­jury-plagued ca­reer. Grif­fey will be in­ducted into the Base­ball Hall of Fame this sum­mer.
