Spotlight: Ricky Kelton

Colorado LF Rickey Kelton holds one of Griffey World's most unassailable records, hitting safely in 35 consecutive games during S5. The three-time All-Star turned in an impressive .370/.426/.611/1.037 line that season, with 30 HR and 147 RBI. The two-time Silver Slugger and Gold Glove winner stands second on the career list for batting average, behind only teammate Royce Minor, and boasts a .359/.421/.619/1.040 career line, including 193 HR and 907 RBI. With two years remaining on a contract extension signed during S6, the 34-year-old Kelton appears likely to retire with the Mile High Rapids.
