Marty Lurie Talks San Francisco Giants Baseball

How many inside the park homers does Rickey Henderson have?

Todd asks the question about how many inside the park homers Rickey Henderson has hit in his career?

In a surprise answer, thanks to David Vincent, the home run guru, he informs us that Rickey has only one inside the park homer, hit on July 6, 1980 against the Chicago White Sox.

For my part, I will tell you the starting pitchers in that game:Lefty Ken Kravec started for the White Sox and Steve McCatty for the A’s. Chicago won the game 5-4. sweeping a doubleheader. Steve “Rainbow” Trout pitched a five hit shutout in game one, beating Mike Norris.

Interesting that you asked the question today (May 1st), the anniversary of Rickey breaking Lou Brock’s stolen base record in 1991 and also one year later on this date, Henderson stole the 1000th base of his career against the Tigers in Detroit.

Bet you are glad you asked.
