"Why should I stretch? Does a cheetah stretch before it chases its prey?”
April 3, 1989. The Kid stepped up to the plate for the first time. Nobody had arrived to the Big Leagues with as much fanfare. Nobody carried the expectations of the 19-year-old phenom. And treated pressure with the kind of ease that @therealkengriffeyjr did. It was in the smile, as much as it was in the swing.
He doubled in that first at bat in Oakland. And he homered in his first home game in Seattle a week later. Pressure? Pssht.
New electric blue colorway brings extra energy to The Kid's collection - now included in our sitewide Spring Sale!
