Did you know that the Griffeys were the only father-son tandem in history to win the All-Star MVP Award?
before Jr. was smacking curveballs into the right field stands for the Mariners and Reds, Ken Griffey Sr. was making him a
name for himself as one of the best outfielders in the game. When Jr. finally came up as a prodigy for the Mariners, Sr. even
ended up playing for Seattle as well, where they hit famously hit back-to-back homers during a regular season game. Sr. ended
up winning the MLB All-Star Game MVP all the way back in 1980 for the Reds and Jr. would match by winning in 1992. Jr.'s stellar
All-Star Game performances didn't stop there, however, as Jr. won the Home Run Derby in both 1998 and 1999.
MLB tickets to see various All-Star Weekend events have been a part of the baseball tickets market since 1985,
when the first Home Run Derby was added to the annual All-Star Game to take this event to a whole new level. Not only do you
get a chance to see some of the best players you'll find anywhere, but there are also a bevy of great family-friendly activities
throughout the week, making it always a good idea to come out and celebrate Major League Baseball played at its highest possible
level. Over the years, players like Willie Mays, Bobby Bonds, Derek Jeter, Kirby Puckett, Cal Ripken, Bo Jackson and more
have won the MVP Award, and you never know who is going to burst onto the scene with a banner day that goes down in All-Star
We all know that it's tempting to just stay at home and watch the All-Star
Game and the surrounding activities on TV, but – more than most MLB events even – this is the easiest way to shortchange
the entire experience. Here, fans come out not just to see the actual game, the Home Run Derby and the celebrity games, but
a whole plethora of fan-oriented activities that give you a completely different level of access that you're just not going
to find anywhere else.
