Dave Henderson: A man that lit up the baseball diamond

Growing up a fan of the Oakland Athletics in the late 1980s and early 1990s was an experience. The personalities on that team came out in droves on the television screen and when you are sitting at the Oakland Coliseum with Mount Davis as the backdrop.

No disrespect to Brock, 19th century Billy "Sliding Billy" Hamilton (914), Ty Cobb (897) or Tim Raines (808), but Rickey was the best ever on the base baths and he wasn't shy to say so (check the video). Nevertheless...
