Welcome to the 1st of "Wake Up With Some Morning Wood"! A place to watch some great highlights both old and new from across the sports world.
What better way to start then with one of the sweetest swings in all of baseball, Ken Griffey Jr, and his great HR Derby display at Fenway Park in 1999. If he could've stayed healthy, there is no doubt that Griffey Jr. would've been the home run king. The display he put on in Fenway Park was incredible, and against the likes of Sammy Sosa and Mark "Big Mac" McGwire. It was a video game dream matchup and Griffey Jr. was as cool as the other side of the pillow.
Have a good weekend everyone!
