GRIFFEY Jr. and PIAZZA are the 2K16 Class for Cooperstown!..."WORD Around the WARNING Track" as the "KID" Ken Griffey Jr. garners 99.3% of the Votes and Mike Piazza joins him getting to the MLB Hall Of Fame! @TheKidGriffeyJr24 @MikePiazza31 #Cooperstown2K16 #MLBHallOfFamneClassof2K16 #WordAroundTheWarningTrack

No that is not Ken Griffey Jr.'s Twitter Handle as the Bluedude just threw that one out there for the "Kid". What is Ken Griffey Jr.'s and Mike Piazza's is a Trip to Cooperstown N.Y. for ever as they both garnered enough votes to be elected to the MLB Hall Of Fame Class of 2k16.

The "Kid" Griffey Jr. was said to be a grand slam for the Hall and was as he gets a record 99.3% of the votes with Piazza netting 83% and Amazins' get that Jersey put up and out of the Equipment Manager's Cage yes the #31 Jersey from the Metropolitans! Remember players need 75% of the vote to get it and former 'Stros Hot Corner and First baseman and former Bo Sox Farmhand Jeff Bagwell netted the next closest to Piazza with 71% of the votes.

Griffey also became the first #1 overall pick to get into Cooperstown as he beats players like Shawon Dunston (Cubs), Harold Baines (White Sox), and Darryl Strawberry (Amazins') and all three of those could play with "Straw" being the most talented in that group.
