    Ken Griffey Jr., Mike Piazza took opposite Cooperstown paths

    No Hall of Famer ever began his career with the pomp and circumstance of Ken Griffey Jr., who was selected by the Seattle Mariners with the first overall pick in the 1987 draft and reached the major leagues for good after just 129 minor league games. And no player bound for Cooperstown emerged from more modest roots than Mike Piazza, who was a 62nd-round pick of the Los Angeles Dodgers a year later and played 387 minor league games before his first promotion in 1992. A pair of players whose careers originated in decidedly dissimilar fashions will converge at the pinnacle of their profession Sunday afternoon, when Griffey and Piazza are officially inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y.
