As always, Ken Griffey Jr. did not need a giant "Look at me" sign while deciding to step away from the game Thursday, even though most of his career we couldn't look away.
And as with his entire career, we looked toward controversy (a missed call in the final out during a perfect game) rather than pay attention to him.
Griffey should be used to being ignored for controversy since we marveled at steroid users instead of appreciating someone who was not only better than steroid users, but far cleaner.
While it is nearly impossible to rank the plays made by a player like Griffey, here are at least 10 of his most memorable ones.
Oh, and he also made the greatest baseball video game of all-time, Ken Griffey Jr. Baseball and was fantastic on The Simpsons.
