From Dan Patrick in this week's SI, Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson offers the patron saint some humbling recognition:
Broadcaster Harold Reynolds told me a good Rickey story last week. In 1987, when Henderson missed a chunk of the season with an injury, Reynolds led the AL with 60 stolen bases for the Mariners. After the season Reynolds got a call from Henderson: "The phone rings. 'Henderson here.' I say, 'Hey, what's going on, Rickey?' I think he's calling to congratulate me, but he goes, 'Sixty stolen bases? You ought to be ashamed. Rickey would have 60 at the break.' And then click, he hung up."
