One of the game's best hung it up Wednesday night:

In his prime, Ken Griffey Jr. was considered the best player in baseball, on pace to rewrite the record books.

Injuries derailed his chance to become the home run king. His spot as one of the game's all-time greats is without question.

Now relegated to part-time duty and with little pop left in that perfect swing, Griffey unexpectedly decided Wednesday night to retire after 22 mostly brilliant seasons.

The Kid that once saved baseball in the Pacific Northwest with his backward hat, giddy teenage smile and unrivaled talent, had become a shell of the player who dominated the 1990s.

The 40-year-old Griffey wasn't at Safeco Field on Wednesday. He simply released a statement through the Seattle Mariners -- the franchise he helped saved in the 1990s and returned to for the conclusion of his career -- that he was done playing.

Griffey finished his 22 season career as a 13 time All-Star, the 1997 AL MVP, 5th on the all-time HR list (630), the active leader with 1,836 RBIs, and is an almost certain first-ballot Hall of Famer.
