null Baseball Some baseball memories just stick with you, regardless of your rooting interest. The night Ken Griffey Jr. and his dad hit back-to-back home runs against the Angels is one of those moments for me.I was neither a Mariners nor an Angels fan, but I was watching the Fr

The thought had barely left my mind when Junior made history — still the only time a dad and his son have hit back-to-back home runs.Cool then, cool now. MORE: 10 times Ken Griffey Jr. invaded pop culture in the '90sAs a father, I know the pride Griffey Sr. must've felt watching his son's homer. The younger Griffey was already a star at 20 years old, but little did his dad know — or maybe he did — the career that was about to unfold for his son. That homer on Sept. 14, 1990, was one of 630 Junior would hit in a 22-year career on his way to the Hall of Fame. By comparison, Griffey Sr. hit just 152 home runs in his 19-year career. You might say the Griffey "sequel" was an improvement over the original. But that's just what any parent would want.
