If you haven’t already, you really should check out all the coverage Ken Griffey’s historic 600th home run over at the Enquirer. I count no fewer than nine articles, and they’re all worth at least a scan.
My favorite quote comes from Adam Dunn: “It was very cool,” Adam Dunn said. “But it would have been a lot cooler if it was in front of a packed house like it should have been. It was kind of like hitting it at Ed Smith (Reds spring training home).”
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
