1993 Headline: Rickey Henderson Starts Double Headers With Homers!!

On this day in 1993, Rickey Henderson and his Oakland A’s teammates battled against the Cleveland Indians in a double-header.

What is so special about that you ask? Double-headers are a normal part of a baseball schedule you say…

Well during this double header, a man by the name of Rickey Henderson led off both of these games with home runs, a feat that had not been accomplished in 60 years. In game #1, Henderson launched a homer off of Paul Abbott. And then just a few short hours later he did it again, this time of off Mark Clark.

Happy Anniversary Rickey Henderson, a true one-of-a-kind player!!!

  1. What an exciting player he was. I’d love to see a video special done on him. A bummer that there seems to be no streaming specials for Henderson on netflix, itunes, etc: http://www.canistream.it/search/movie/rickey%20henderson

    • Matt- Agreed, 100%. I’d love to see MLB Network invest some time and production money into pieces like this. Something that would keep us ‘old’ guys happy while also educating the younger baseball fans as well.
