Ken Griffey Jr. hits 2500 in MLB

Ken Griffey Jr. became only the 84th player in MLB history to reach 2500 hits as he struck a first inning single against the Braves.

He was up against Atlanta’s John Smoltz with two outs in a scoreless game but Griffey got a defensive shift playing for him to pull. However, he went to the opposite field and hit a easy base shot on the ground into the left field which extended his hitting streak for four games.

Wow, nice record!
