It only seemed right to end this the way it began. First post, last post. One of my all-time favorites. Rickey brought an intensity, a joyous exuberance to the game, which I think is how it should always be played. Thank you all so much for your support and kind words. You are proof that baseball fans are the best fans!
May 1, 1992 Rickey Henderson steals his 1000th base. Henderson already held the record for most career stolen bases. He broke the record previously held by Lou Brock with his 939th stolen base exactly one year earlier on May 1, 1991.
