Russell Wilson, other athletes share excitement over HOF news

He didn't get in unanimously, but Ken Griffey Jr. did set a record for highest vote percentage (99.3) as he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame on Wednesday.

Then came the congratulations, the memories and other reactions from athletes all over sports who were inspired by Griffey's sweet swing, huge home runs and how-did-he-do-that catches.

Congrats to the Legend! @therealkengriffeyjr No one like him! Seattle will never forget you nor the Game! #GOAT

As Tom Glavine mentioned, Mike Piazza got in, too, and he had more than a few fans.
