Griffey, Cone: AL Players of Week

July 7, 1998

DENVER (AP) _ Ken Griffey Jr. of Seattle, booed repeatedly during the All-Star workout, and David Cone of New York were picked Monday as co-AL players of the week.

Griffey, who angered fans at Coors Field by refusing to participate in the home run derby, hit .522 last week (12-for-26) with one homer, eight RBIs and 26 total bases.

Cone, overlooked for the AL All-Stars despite a 12-2 record that ties him for the major league high in wins, was 2-0 with a 1.06 ERA last week, striking out 15 in 17 innings.
