Rickey Henderson

I saw this on today and had to laugh. Evidently, Rickey Henderson went to see the Giants play the Mets and caught a foul ball. Here's what he had to say about the experience:

"'Everybody was asking me for the ball. I said, "You're not getting this ball." I always wanted to get a foul ball. This one's going on a shelf at home.'"

Remember, this guy actually stole bases, got on base, and amongst other things, caught foul balls for a living...He's simply one of the most fascinating (is that the right word?) people to ever put on a baseball uniform.
