Today is the best day of my A's life..

My all-time favorite player, the best player ever to play the game, the man who made the Coliseum a feared place in the 1980's, the man who singlehandedly disrupted every game he ever played in.... Rickey Henderson... goes to the Hall of Fame today. The player I worshipped as a kid, whose departure I lamented, whose re-acquisition I celebrated, the one player who kept me loving baseball when the rest of the baseball world was going to hell. Rickey Henderson goes to the Hall today.

 

"Billy Ball..A's baseball..."

 

It's gonna be a remarkable year for A's fans. I'll see you all in Cooperstown in August.July!!!

 

Congrats Rickey! David Cross was right when he said about Rickey the Christmas baby..."God got it right the second time!"
