August is Rickey Henderson Month in Oakland

Ray Fosse mentioned it during his introduction of Rickey during his jersey retirement ceremony, but the City of Oakland has officially declared August "Rickey Henderson Month."

At their meeting on July 21, 2009, the Oakland City Council unanimously approved resolution #82154, to congratulate Rickey on his recent induction to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

If you're really interested, you can even view the video of the City Council meeting, where the proclamation is presented. It's 8.2 on the agenda, and it's about an hour into the clip, starting at approximately the 1:12 mark.
