@burntfrost - He began his career and gained fame playing for the Mariners but he also played for the Reds for 9 years, so it's fair to say that he was a famous Reds player as well.

To be accurate, The Griffeys' first name is George, Kenneth is their middle name, so you either need to add a statement about commonly used as first names or remove Griffey from the list.

Sally Ride was the first American woman to travel to space, and the one of the youngest astronaut to go to space. And per Wikipedia, she is also one of the first LGBT people to go to space!

Although admittedly she's probably better known in the USA than in other countries
