MIAMI (AP) Jazz Chisholm Jr., the Miami Marlins' Euro-stepping, home-run blasting all-star, has goals beyond his impressive stats. With every stolen base and acrobatic catch, Chisholm hopes to have an impact on the next generation of players.
"I had Ken Griffey Jr., who was a real idol to a lot of guys all over," Chisholm said in a video interview with The Associated Press. "Not just to baseball fans. He was an idol to basketball players, football players, guys in every sport, and that's how I want to be too. Not just known as a baseball player but just known as an athlete that everybody can look up to."
