Synopsis

Rickey Henderson by Greg Roensch

In a Major League Baseball career spanning 25 years and nine clubs, Rickey Henderson became baseball's greatest base-stealer, and, arguably, the game's greatest lead-off hitter. Though controversial at times, Henderson was first and foremost a run-producing entertainer who led his teams to victory in many different ways. Known for his infectious smile, electrifying headfirst slides, and split-second snatch catches, he remains the all-time leader of stolen bases, with 1,406, and also holds the league record for runs scored, with 2,295. Readers of Rickey Henderson will be captivated by this one-of-a-kind superstar whose accomplishments on the field rank him as one of the game's greatest players.
