You can’t hit lefthanders and you’re old

From Dayton Daily News: Telling it as (like) it is

Ken Griffey Jr. was not in Monday’s lineup and he saw 9-year-old Darren Baker standing in the clubhouse.

“Why am I not playing tonight, Darren?” asked Griffey.

“Because you can’t hit lefthanders,” said Darren, son of manager Dusty Baker. “And you’re old.”

Ha ha.  At least one Baker isn’t afraid of saying how it is.

    But…didn’t he hit the walk-off homer? Of course, I had a chuckle reading this… LOL!

    Yeah, Griffey hit a walk-off homer last night and off of a left hander too. Maybe the words of a 9 year old got him fired up.

    LOL, never ask a young kid a question that you don’t want the truth from.
