PEORIA, Ariz. -- Ken Griffey Jr. made an impromptu appearance at Mariners camp on Monday.
Griffey, who spent much of the fall in Arizona with his oldest son, Trey, playing football for the University of Arizona in Tucson, was on his way to Mexico City.
He spent some time chatting with Willie Bloomquist, Justin Smoak and Mike Zunino around the batting cage -- Griffey did most of the talking -- before sharing a few laughs with new Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon.
