RICKEY HENDERSON RUMORS

10 Random Thoughts For the #Yankees Stretch Run, by @nyypete

Heading to the stretch run can anybody make any sense of this team? Consider: 1. The Yankees have stolen eight bases in 12 attempts since the all star break. Rickey Henderson used to do that in one weekend series. Stolen bases are only the tip of the iceberg. When bats get heavy as the season rolls along and Earl Weaver's favorite offense, the three run home run, comes to a screeching...

Flashback: Rickey Henderson sets single-season steals record

Rickey Henderson is arguably the greatest leadoff hitter of all time, and there's even less debate about his status as the majors' best basestealer.

Flashback: Cardinals' Lou Brock joins 3,000-hit club ... against Cubs

Hall of Famer Lou Brock retired as the majors' all-time leader in stolenbases --€“ before being passed by the "greatest of all time" Rickey Henderson. But Brock had to get on base in order to steal all those bases. And on this date in 1979, Brock collected his 3,000th hit.

On this day: Rickey Henderson broke Lou Brock's stolen base record with 939th career swipe

Rickey Henderson aka the "Man of Steal" stands alone atop Mount Stolen Base with 1406 career swipes, 438 more than Lou Brock who is second on the all-time list with 938. 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...

Los Angeles Dodgers’ Dee Gordon Could Flirt with 100 Steals

Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Dee Gordon swiped two more bases against the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday afternoon and now has 30 steals on the season. This puts him on pace to collect 95 stolen bases throughout the course of the season, a number that would represent the most since Rickey Henderson tallied 93 for the New York Yankees in 1988.  After a leadoff walk, Dee Gordon...

Oakland Athletics Fans Paint Mural Urging Team to Stay in City, Draw Attention of Rickey Henderson (Video)

Oakland Athletics fans are passionate about their team, and as most fans are wont to do, the A’s fanbase is doing their best to keep the A’s in Oakland. The team’s search for a new ballpark is well documented, especially as the O.co Coliseum has fallen further and futher into disrepair — just this season, the A’s dugout was flooded with sewage during more than one game...
