The MLB First-Year Player Draft is less than two weeks old and scouts are scrambling to find their diamonds in the rough. Back in 1987, scouts didn’t need to search hard to find the No. 1 prospect, Ken Griffey Jr. “The Kid” was taken No. 1 straight out of high school by the Mariners and quickly became one of baseball’s most popular players. The 13-time All-Star ranks fifth all time with 630 home runs to go along with 10 straight Gold Gloves and the 1997 American League MVP. (VJ Lovero/SI, Richard Mackson/SI)

    Griffey is actually 6th in homers now. He was my favorite player before the Rays came to be.
