I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for Edgar Martinez. Back in 1999, not long before the Seattle Mariners moved into their new ballpark, I visited the Mariners' Kingdome clubhouse to ask the players what they thought about Safeco Field. I've always felt like an interloper when I'm in a clubhouse, and so it wasn't easy to approach Ken Griffey to ask for a comment.
