It's a game that doesn't even count in the spring exhibition game standings, but there's plenty to see in the Seattle vs. Australia contest.
Outfielder Chris Snelling, now 27 and coming off 15 surgeries, is in righ field for Australia.
And George Brett - yes, THAT George Brett - is in the Australian dugout, in uniform. Turns out, he's a friend of another Aussie outfielder, Justin Huber.
Then, there's Griffey.
Playing in his first game, the Mariners designated hitter drew applause for walking into the on-deck circle. He drew more when he walked to the batters box.
How'd he look?
Junior took a strike from lefty Travis Blackley, another former Mariner. Then three consecutive balls, all low, and fouled a 3-1 pitch into the press box. Writers scattered like ducklings.
And on a 3-2 pitch, Junior walked. More applause.
Griffey and Yuniesky Betancourt advanced on a passed ball, and Adrian Beltre singled home a run - with Griffey held at third base and Beltre hustling into second.
Wladimir Balentine grounded out to end the threat.
After one: Seattle 1, Australia 0
Junior's next at-bat came in the third inning, after Mike Morse had doubled home one run, then scored on Ronny Cedeno's single.
With two out, Griffey hit the first pitch to the warning track in straightaway center field.
There won't be a third at-bat. Griffey trotted off thr field, bat and helmet in hand.
