Ken Griffey Jr. still hitting home runs in his bank account.
Despite being retired since 2010, Hall of Fame slugger Ken Griffey Jr. remains one of the highest-paid players on the Cincinnati Reds.
Griffey signed a nine-year, $112.5 million contract with the Reds shortly after he was traded from the Mariners and ultimately deferred half the money so he could collect payments from 2009 through 2024.
