CSN-CA Legends Series

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.

Very cool!! If you ever find a whole episode somewhere, please let me/us know. I know I'd like to see it in its entirety. Did you look at the pics in the background and recognize which baseball card/s they were on?? lol!!

Do you happen to know if the Legends program about Rickey will be aired in the Anaheim area on the Dodgers and or the Angels CSN channels? My mother lives there and would like to see it. I've seen it, and it is very well done, in my opinion.

Sorry for the delayed response, by I was trying to find out an answer for you. From what I have found it so far, it looks like it's only going to be shown on the CSN-CA channel locally.
