The idea was for those pink game-used bats to be autographed and sold at auction to raise money for cancer research. But some high profile players are giving theirs to family members including Ken Griffey Jr.
There may be a Ken Griffey Jr. model or two in the upcoming MLB Auction of game-used pink Mother’s Day bats. But it won’t be the one Junior used to hit his 570th career home run on Sunday.
Griffey says he ordered numerous bats but the ones used in the game are going to family members.
The same goes for Craig Biggio, who had three hits Sunday to push closer to 3,000.
