I like that RICKEY HENDERSON, who for his career in major League Baseball was adept at hitting the high hard ones [ll] as well as the off speed joints threw everyone a curveball of his own with his humble induction speech on Sunday in Cooperstown.

We all agree that RICKEY deserved the nomination on the first ballot. His career numbers are the testament to someone who dedicated himself to the game of baseball. His records are going to be in place for a long time too since the game isn’t played on the patient racetrack that RICKEY labored.

Congrats again to JIM RICE and RICKEY HENDERSON.

    Rickey Henderson is one of the greats. His gaffle game will stand the test of time.
    It might be because I was too young to realize it, but I didn’t know he was such a quotable character until the internets.

    I love baseball player thighs — and Rick Henderson had some yummy ones. But uh…ruh…your post wasn’t about that, huh? My bad, joe.

    Haha! My Henderson cards (topps, fleer & upper deck) just went up in stock. Now, I’m on a mission to get them autographed….

    Rickey Henderson was a first ballot Hall Of Famer…Jim Rice? SHOULD’VE been a first ballot Hall Of Famer if it wasn’t for his disdain for the Boston sports media (understandable) and the fact he played at least one season too long.

    Congrats to both of them.
