Rickey Henderson was born in the back seat of an Oldsmobile on the way to the hospital; he and his mother left Chicago for Oakland after his father left them when he was only two years old. Rickey’s mother later married Paul Henderson, and the family took his surname. Henderson went to Oakland Technical High School, matriculating in 1976, and where Rickey played basketball, baseball, and football. Although he had over a dozen offered scholarships to play football, he opted for baseball after his mother persuaded him, stating that the football players have shorter careers.

The Oakland Athletics drafted Henderson in the fourth round of the 1976 Major League Baseball Draft but as usual spent the next three years developing in the minor leagues. Rickey had his debut for Oakland in June 1979, and he stayed there for the next five seasons, winning four All-Star game invitations, a Gold Glove Award in 1981, one Silver Slugger Award, and was the American League stolen base leader four times.

Henderson was traded to the New York Yankees in December 1984, and stayed there until 1989 when he went back to Oakland. During his stint with the Yankees, Rickey played four times at the All-Star event, won the Silver Slugger Award in 1985, and was two-time AL stolen base leader. He returned in the mid-season to his beloved Athletics, and won his first World Championship title with them in 1989, defeating the San Francisco Giants 4-0 in the finals. He remained at Oakland until 1993, and won two more All-Star game invitations, was the MVP of the American League, earned a Silver Slugger Award, and was a three times AL stolen base leader. His net worth was growing steadily.

Henderson won his second and last World Championship title during his stint with the Toronto Blue Jays in 1993, and then he went back to Oakland again for his third time at the club. He stayed there in 1994 and 1995 before moved to the San Diego Padres (1996-1997), then played for the Anaheim Angels in 1997, and had his fourth stint with the Oakland Athletics in 1998, leading the AL in stolen bases that season. In the next few years, Henderson spent time with New York Mets (1999-2000), Seattle Mariners (2000), San Diego Padres (2001), Boston Red Sox (2002), and ended his career with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2003.

During his 24-year career in the MLB, Rickey Henderson recorded 1,406 stolen bases – 130 in a single season – 2,295 runs, and 81 lead-off home runs.

In 2006, the New York Mets hired Henderson as a special instructor to work with hitters, and to teach them base stealing. A year later, he was promoted to the first base coach, but the Mets didn’t offer him a contract extension in 2008. He then periodically worked with Oakland Athletics in 2010.

Regarding his personal life, Rickey Henderson married his high-school sweetheart Pamela in 1983, and they have three children together..
