Ken Griffey Jr. Still Plays Baseball?

Yes.

And if by some miracle he is available for the Cincinnati Reds' Opening Day, he'll find himself in right field instead of center.

Ryan Freel is expected to start the season in center field, since Griffey is still nursing a broken left hand that he injured while wrestling with his kids on a yacht this offseason.

Griffey, a 10-time Gold Glove winner in center, has taken fly balls and made throws from right field in practice. Last season, the 18-year veteran hit .252 with 27 homers and 72 RBIs in 109 games with the Reds, where he has played for the past seven seasons.

Rule of thumb: If your poster was on my bedroom wall 17 years ago, you should'nt still be playing baseball.

Fair enough.
