COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (FOX19 NOW) -

Ken Griffey Jr.'s swing, smile and signature backwards cap look are some of the reasons why he is one of the most popular baseball players of all-time.

But the suit he wore to his Hall of Fame induction ceremony Sunday is the definition of swagger. 

Not only did "The Kid" sport the signature backwards cap look Sunday, he wore a pinstripe suit -- and the pinstripes spelled out the words "Hall of Fame Class of 2016" in Seattle Mariner green. His outfit doesn't stop there,  his gold tie had a silhouette of himself getting a hit.

What an outfit!

Griffey and Mets catcher Mike Piazza were the only two inducted in the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY Sunday.

“I want to thank my family, my friends, the fans, the Reds, the White Sox and the Mariners … for making this kid’s dream come true,” Griffey said, in his closing speech.

The 13-time All-Star is sixth all-time in home runs with 630. In his 22 seasons, the 10-time Gold-Glove winner hit .284 with 1,836 RBIs.

Welcome to Cooperstown, Junior.
