Just got done chatting with Ken Griffey Jr. in the clubhouse and he told me he dropped seven pounds, mainly because he changed his eating habits slightly and also was able to do more work than last year once his knee surgery got done on Oct. 11.
On January 28th, the AP had the same story.
Griffin spent a few days with Griffey at his home in Florida this winter. The trainer said Thursday the slugger who turned 40 on Nov. 21 has lost about 7 pounds.
Then on December 15th, Larry Stone also reported on his weight loss. Can you guess how much it was back then as well?
Most importantly, Griffin said that Griffey feels great, is working out hard, and has lost six to eight pounds en route to his winter goal of losing 15.
To be fair, he is 40 with failing knees and people can plateau when working out.
