Rickey The Life and Legend of an American Original by Howard Bryant

Rickey Henderson is one of the most talented and interesting athletes to ever set foot on the baseball diamond. His all-time stolen base record is as unlikely to be broken as Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak. Long-time baseball writer Howard Bryant deftly explores Henderson’s cultural impact and unique personality as well as his baseball exploits. Bryant follows Henderson’s meteoric rise from fast young outfielder to baseball superstar, a rise that also helped create salary parity for athletes of color. Henderson was an icon and iconoclast who played the game his way, with no apologies. Terrific for baseball fans.  —Ed
