Congrats to Rickey Henderson and Jim Rice for making the HOF. Even a big Yankee fan like myself is happy for Rice, he should have been in a long time ago

Yea im glad too that Jim got in, on his last year too! He was one of the most feared hitters in baseball for 10 years. He was my favorite player as a kid.

Now they can retire his number haha

Congrats

Rickey Henderson was my favorite player as a kid. He definitely had a reputation for being a hotdog, but he was a truly electrifying player, capable of controlling a game when he got on base. As base stealing seems to have become a thing of the past, I don't think anyone will ever come close to catching his record.

Have there ever been two less popular players with the media and their own teammates get in during the same year?

Both deserve it.

Finally Jim Rice makes it...I'm so happy for him.

Never was a Henderson fan, but he sure as hell deserved the honour also.

I can't wait to hear his speech.


Rice should have gone in many years ago.

Both of them are jerks, but deserve the honor due to their playing careers. Congratulations to them.

Now can they stop the madness and put Pete Rose in the Hall. I also think he is a jerk, but how can you not have the all time hit leader in the Hall of Fame?

Was Rickey Henderson a hot dog? At times he would hit a single or draw a walk, and when the pitcher looked over, Rickey would hold up two fingers...


Two pitches later he was standing on third...

My thoughts exactly. I was a big Sox fan in Rice and Fred Lynn's rookie season, before free agency messed up the game. Can you imagine 2 rookie outfielders starting for a team now and having the impact these 2 did? Congrats to Jim Rice!

Henderson was cocky, but he definetly walked the walk. I mean, if he played 130 games a season he scored 100 points!

Put in Blyleven!!!!!
