You have to admire Rickey Henderson's passion for the game. He'll be back in uniform again this year in the new class-A Golden Baseball League as the left fielder of the San Diego Surf Dawgs. Terry Kennedy will be his manager.
Last summer, I caught Rickey in a Newark Bears game. He lead off the game with a walk, stole second, moved to third on the first out and scored on the second. It was the closest I'll ever come to watching Shoeless Joe tear up the South Carolina sandlots after being banned from the major leagues.
