Rickey in the Newspaper

I know I'm a little late in posting this, but better late than never. With the Hall of Fame induction results coming out shortly, interest in Rickey has definitely be picking up. What a nice surprise it was to open up my local paper (the Sacramento Bee) the day after Christmas, and see a nice big picture of Rickey on the inside of the sports page.

Since the font of the article is a little small (you can read it if you click the picture), here's a link to an expanded version of the same article (originally published in the Contra Costa Times).

It's been many years since I've actually read an article about Rickey in the daily paper, and it was kind of fun. There will naturally be plenty more articles in the near future, with his impending induction into the Hall. If any readers out there happen to see any commemorative Rickey pull-outs in their local paper, please don't hesitate to let me know. I'm expecting that Rickey Henderson memorabilia will pick up in the coming months, and I don't want to miss out on anything cool!
