Rickey Henderson was --and is---like no one but himself: bold, outspoken and one of the great base-stealers of all time. Playing for the Oakland A's, he was legendary for his talent, humor, style and flamboyance. Howard Bryant, with his signature lucidity and narrative verve, chronicles the ups and downs in the career of one of the great Black baseball players in living memory.
Howard Bryant is a senior writer for ESPN, an NPR correspondent, and Executive Producer of BOTR w/Bob Costas. He's the author of The Last Hero: A Life of Henry Aaron; Full Dissidence: Notes from an Uneven Playing Field; and a book for young readers, Legends: The Best Players, Games and Teams in Baseball.
