Yesterday officially marked the end of an era as Ken Griffey Jr. announced his retirement from the game of Baseball. Griffey Jr. is one of the most iconic players from the 90s and definitely one of the most revolutionary figures during that time period. His effortless, beautiful and powerful swing, his limitless range in the outfield, his controversy causing backwards hat, and of course, his amazing line with Nike, all go down as legend. Though his final numbers, though amazing, will fall short of early projections, his career on and off the field never fell short. And for all of this, we say thank you Kid.

Now that Griffey Jr. is set to walk away from the game of Baseball, what should Nike do next for The Kid?
