Happy Saturday everyone.
Our retro throwback picture features one of our favorite players from the era when we were growing up. What it must have been like to own “The Man of Steal” Rickey Henderson beginning in the 1980 season all the way until 1990. Especially back then when all those die hards kept the stats on paper somehow all season long and Henderson was tallying seasons of 100, 130, 108, 80, 87, 93, 77, and 65 through the decade.
