Ken Griffey Jr. became the seventh member of the Mariners Hall of Fame on Saturday. While he also played for the Reds and White Sox, it'd be hard to argue that Junior's most iconic years weren't those in a Seattle uniform, which he wore from 1989-99 and again from 2009-10. Here are 13 moments, each from sometime in those 13 years.

 

1. The first at-bat of Griffey's career:
