SEATTLE - The Mariners are putting Ken Griffey Jr. jerseys on sale Thursday afternoon at the team store at Safeco Field.
The name and No. 24 are being sewn on stacks of jerseys at the STT Sports Lettering company near the stadium and rushed to retail outlets.
Some fans in the store Thursday asked for tickets, but single-game tickets don't go on sale until March 14. Season tickets and packages are being sold online and by phone.
Griffey signed a 1-year contract to return to Seattle where he started his baseball career.
