Ken Griffey Jr. tells a story of why he never considered playing for the Yankees

first_imgBENDER: Junior was just as ‘cool’ then as Patrick Mahomes is now  He recounted an incident at Yankee Stadium in the early 1980s that involved him; his dad, Ken; Yankees owner George Steinbrenner and former Yankees third baseman Graig Nettles.Wow, Ken Griffey Jr. had a really damn good reason to never play for the Yankees.”Look at third base.”— Roger Cormier (@yayroger) June 22, 2020From that point, Junior said, the hate built. (The elder Griffey played 4 1/2 seasons for the Yankees from 1982-86.)”There’s certain things that a dad drills into you as a kid that just sticks with you,” he said. And that (beating the Yankees) was one of them.”Junior has previously said that former Yankees manager Billy Martin was a villain for wanting him and his brother Craig to not be near the Yankees’ clubhouse. There were also hard feelings over clubhouse drama involving the elder Griffey when he played in New York. In the 2020 update, it was Steinbrenner ordering him thrown out of the dugout while Nettles’ son was allowed to take ground balls at third base.Junior was in the big leagues in 1989 with Seattle as a teenager. Six years later, he was racing around the bases on Edgar Martinez’s double to score the series-winning run against the Yankees and manager Buck Showalter (who would never disrespect the game by wearing his cap backward) in the 1995 ALDS. Griffey’s career numbers against the Yankees: 36 home runs, 102 RBIs, a .311/.392/.595 slash line and 14 stolen bases in 133 regular-season games. His numbers in that five-game ’95 ALDS: five homers, a .391/.444/1.043 slash line and nine runs scored.He also had the fire to run up the outfield wall for that famous catch in the Bronx in the early ’90s. Ken Griffey Jr.’s grudge against the Yankees is closing in on 40 years. It looks as if Junior hasn’t forgiven or forgotten.Griffey told for MLB Network a version of the reason he refused to consider joining the Yankees during his career, and why he was motivated to do so much damage to them on the field. His comments were part of the documentary “Junior” that aired Sunday night.last_img read more

first_imgThe Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA) will today begin intensively to orient 24-newly recruited directors at the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP) in strategic leadership and management in the public sector.The intensive week-long orientation training is part of the new recruits’ 90-day probation on their academic and criminal records set by the MFDP, as well as a way to formally school them in the public sector reforms of the country.Established in 1969, LIPA is the government’s center for capacity building of civil servants and the institutions at which they work.The training runs from 8a.m. to 2p.m.  Monday through Friday, and representatives from the Civil Service Agency and the Governance Commission are expected to join in the training.Some of the topics expected to be taught include: Code of Conduct, Public Financial Management Law and Regulations, Public Procurement Law and Management and Effective Organizational Communication and Time Management as well as Introduction to Public Sector Reforms, Civil Service Standing Order and Public Administration.The Director General of LIPA, Mr. Oblayon Nyemah, told newsmen yesterday that besides the expected week-long training, LIPA has also ended the completion of training of 41 top officers of the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN).The newly recruited directors are all employees of the former Ministry of Finance but were recruited through a competitive vetting process recently to beef up the newly established MFDP.They have been classified into four groups: Departments of Fiscal Affairs, Administration, Economic Management and Budget & Planning.The Department of Fiscal Affairs has nine distinct operational offices, to include, Directors of Non-Tax Revenue, Indirect Taxation, Modeling &Forecast, Direct Taxes, Fiscal Decentralization, Financial Approval, Treasury Services, Financial Regulations and Accounting Services. The Department of Budget & Development Planning has the second largest operational squad, namely the directors of Budget Policy &Coordination, Social and Community Services, Economic Services, Public Administration Services, Regional & Sectoral Services, Public Investment, Monitoring & Evaluation and Planning, Development & Coordination.Others include the Directors of Administration, Human Resource, Budget and Finance Integrity, which  are under the Department of Administration; while the Directors of Aid Management, Economic  Policy and Microeconomics and Financial Policy are part of the Department of Economic Management.It may be recalled that a program to kick-off the orientation of the newly recruited Directors was held last Tuesday at the MFDP building on Broad Street.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
