My favorite baseball player ever, Rickey Henley Henderson, was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame earlier today!

Rickey has been a big hero of mine since 1981, when I was ten. The first rap I wrote, in 1985, was called "Run Rickey, Run."

There's a suitcase in my parents' basement stuffed with hundreds of different Rickey baseball cards, buttons, figurines, and magazine articles.

It feels good to know that he's now officially in the Hall of Fame. Here's a sweet article, with video.

Kudos, also, to the great Red Sox slugger Jim Rice. He, too, was voted in today.
