If you're heading to work at the Ken Griffey Jr. building, chances are you're a Nike employee.

Nike Inc. is naming four corporate headquarters buildings and a track after some of its longtime endorsers. Besides Griffey, the names of Mia Hamm, Michael Johnson, Jerry Rice and Pete Sampras will also adorn structures at the company's Beaverton, Ore., campus.Some names from Nike's athlete roster are conspicuously absent, including tennis star Andre Agassi and golfer Tiger Woods.

But there's some hope for other Nike endorsers. The company recently broke ground on two more office buildings, which make up the second phase of its expansion.
