4. Ken Griffey Jr. – July 14, 1992
When Ken Griffey Jr. came up to the majors at such a young age in 1989, fans of the baseball world immediately fell in love with his smooth swing from the left side of the box.
Fans knew that he was special and the record books were in jeopardy if he could stay healthy. Griffey was the star in the All-Star game as he led the AL to a 13-6 victory over the NL in Jack Murphy Stadium in San Diego. He batted seventh, singled in a run off of Tom Glavine in the top of the first, hit a solo home run off of Greg Maddux in the 3rd inning, and finally doubled off of Bob Tewksbury in the fifth.
Why Twins manager Tom Kelly took him out with a chance to hit for the cycle, I still have no idea. Griffey finished the day going 3 for 3, with 2 RBI, a web gem and a lot of admirers.
