Ken Griffey Jr. is finally setting the record straight, making sure everyone knows he did nothing to violate his contract when injuring himself.
The papier mache center-fielder says he broke his hand wrestling with his kids while on his fancy yacht in the Bahamas in December. Apparently, his 13-year-old son jumped in and knocked him off balance, forcing him to land awkwardly on his left hand to avoid crushing his three younger children.
Junior claims his hand feels fine and he expects to be ready to go for spring training. All he needs is word from the Cincinnati Reds' medical director to make sure he hasn't lost any range of motion.
