Ken Griffey Jr. Takes Nap During Baseball Game, Misses At Bat

What happens when a 40-year-old future Hall of Famer goes into the clubhouse to get a jacket during a game? Absolutely nothing.


Everybody expects some compassion when they miss a final exam because the alarm didn't go off or sleep through a morning meeting after a night of negotiating with prostitutes. So, why is it that when Ken Griffey Jr. missed an at bat because he dozed off in the locker room, people start calling him "useless" and "irresponsible?"

During a recent Seattle Mariners game, the future Hall of Famer was called upon to pinch hit in a key situation. And if he was 10 years younger or actually awake, it probably would have gone really well.

"He was asleep in the clubhouse," one player told the Tacoma Tribune. "He'd gone back about the fifth inning to get a jacket and didn't come back. I went back in about the seventh inning -- and he was in his chair, sound asleep."

In all fairness, he’s 40-years-old. The fact that this doesn’t happen more often is the most surprising part of the story. I can't count the amount of times my grandfather went into the house to go get his coat and ended up missing for several days afterwards.
