The 13-time MLB All Star retired in 2010 after 22 years in the Majors—and 13 seasons with the Mariners. He will be the seventh person inducted into the team's hall of fame, joining Alvin Davis (1997), Dave Niehaus (2000), Jay Buhner (2004), Edgar Martinez (2007), Randy Johnson (2012) and Dan Wilson (2012).
Griffey, 43, holds several Mariners records, including overall home runs (417) and single-season records for home runs (56), RBIs (147) and extra-base hits (93).
The induction ceremony will take place before a Mariners home game versus the Milwaukee Brewers at 6:10 p.m. on Aug. 10. Griffey will be eligible for induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2016.
