Comcast SportsNet California recently began a new series titled "Legends," and they started it all off with an in-depth look at Rickey Henderson. To begin, I'm ecstatic that the A's have a new TV deal with CSN-CA, as their previous deal really sucked. I was lucky if one game per week was on TV here in Sacramento, and now I get almost all of them!
So, not only do they allow me to watch the A's, but they started off a new series with a special on Rickey as well! I actually haven't gotten a chance to watch all of it yet (it premiered on April 20th, and has been on a few times since then), but from what I've seen it's been pretty interesting!
The show is going to be on again April 28th at 8:30pm as well as April 30th at 7:00pm. This are all PST, and most of you guys probably don't get CSN-CA, but fortunately there are some clips available on the website.
A short clip contemplating why the A's might have traded Rickey to the Yankees in 1985.
Rickey Henderson - "One-of-a-Kind"
A few of Rickey's teammates (Dave Stewart, Terry Steinbach, Carney Lansford) and coach Tony LaRussa talk about playing with Rickey.
Rickey comments on how he'd like to be remembered as a ballplayer.
