Hey guys I am back with another book blog this time I will read about "Rickey Henderson One of A Kind. " From the time of the dead - ball era the 1880s through the 1920, as well as in the Negro Leagues, when African Americans were forced to play separately from white players, the roots of baseball had been about getting on base , about forcing the action.
No one forced the action like Ricky Henderson. When he began his rookie year with the Oakland A's in the 1979, Ricky was unlike anything the fans had ever seen. Rickey could run and run fast. He grew up in Oakland and not only was he a baseball star at Oakland Technical High School but also a football star-and he was built like one, too, like a running back."
