1993 HEADLINE: Rickey Henderson Leads Off Each Game Of Double Header 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!!!
