Father's Day 2016: Health and Home-Runs With Ken Griffey Jr. and Sr.

Most of us grew up watching Ken Griffey Jr. Whether you’re a baseball fan or not, anyone can recognize that swing—that swing helped Jr. earn his spot in the Hall of Fame. And then before Jr.’s time, our dads watched Sr. They are legends. But what you probably didn't know is that Sr. beat prostate cancer.

For Father’s Day this year, we spent some time with the Griffeys for their take on the special day and the nationwide project the two of them are teaming up on to fight cancer. Plus they reflect on their playing days, and of course with the All-Star Game approaching, we found out who they think—way in advance—will win this year’s home-run derby.
