SEATTLE (AP) - Ken Griffey Jr. will be inducted into the Seattle Mariners Hall of Fame as its seventh member.
The Mariners announced the induction Tuesday. Griffey's ceremony will take place Aug. 10 before the Mariners face the Milwaukee Brewers.
Griffey spent 13 of his 22 seasons in the majors with the Mariners. He was drafted by Seattle in 1987, made his debut at the major league level two years later and went on to have one of the finest careers in baseball history. Griffey finished with 630 home runs - sixth all-time - and was a 13-time All-Star and the 1997 American League MVP.
After time in Cincinnati and Chicago, Griffey returned to Seattle in 2009-10, his final game coming on June, 2, 2010.
Griffey has spent the past two seasons as a special consultant to the franchise.
