(Guillermo from Montevideo, Uruguay)
(A) 1984 season: 441 PAs, 4 BBs. (B) I feel fortunate to have watched him run the bases in person on a number of occasions. One of my most vivid game memories is sitting on the first-base line at Yankee Stadium and having a perfect view of Griffin being picked off, this would have been 1986 or 1987. I mean, I didn't get to see Babe Ruth hit a home run, but I saw one of the worst baserunners of all time do what he did best. (Steven Goldman)
