Griffey starts his own club — 400
The Mariners have their first 400-HR club member, the same guy who started the 300-HR club.
With one mighty swing of his bat in the fifth inning tonight, Ken Griffey Jr. sent a Jered Weaver pitch into the right field seats.
The 400th home run of his career wearing a Mariners uniform was the 613th of his Major League career. The latest came on a 1-and-0 pitch from Weaver. Two pitches earlier, left fielder Endy Chavez hit his first career home run with the Mariners.
The crowd gave Griffey a thunderous ovation and he came out for a curtain call.
