Major League Baseball legend witnessed his son Trey score his first touchdown as a member of the Arizona Wildcats in the Dec. 31 AdvoCare V100 Bowl against the Boston College Golden Eagles.

Major League Baseball legend Ken Griffey, Jr. witnessed his son Trey's first career touchdown as a member of the Arizona Wildcats on Dec. 30. 

According to Nick Bromberg of Yahoo! Sports, the older Griffey was behind the opposing end zone when his son caught a 26-yard touchdown pass -- the first of two for the day -- from senior Wildcats quarterback BJ Denker to give his team a 21-6 lead with 30 seconds left to play in the first quarter.

The former Seattle Mariners, Cincinnati Reds and Chicago White Sox legend got a closer view of his son's second touchdown of the game when he was situated in Boston College's end zone in the second half, per Bromberg. 

Trey Griffey's second touchdown, which was hauled in from three yards out in the fourth quarter, resulted in a 42-19 lead and the final score of the ballgame. He wound up with three catches for 41 yards, according to David Brandt of The Associated Press. 

The Wildcats' official athletics website notes Denker finished with 275 yards while true freshman wide receiver Nate Phillips had 193 receiving yards -- the first 100-yard receiving game for Arizona in the 2013 NCAA season. 

Phillips also "broke the school record for most receiving yards in a bowl game as well as most receiving yards in a game by a freshman in school history," the same update points out. 

The Wildcats' official website lists the 6'3", 191-pound Griffey as a redshirt freshman who hails from Orlando, Fla. and is currently enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences. He earned Associated Press 8A First Team All-State honors as a high school senior. 

His father, now 44 years old, played in 22 MLB seasons from 1989-2010, racking up 2,781 hits, 630 home runs and 1,836 RBIs as verified by ESPN stats.
