RICKEY: The Life and Legend of an American Original by Howard Bryant-acclaimed sports journalist and three-time nominee for the National Magazine Award. Bryant is also the author of nine previous books, including The Last Hero: A Life of Henry Aaron, The Heritage: Black Athletes, A Divided America and the Politics of Patriotism, and Juicing the Game: Drugs, Power, and the Fight for the Soul of Major League Baseball. Now, he offers the definitive biography of Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson, baseball's epic leadoff hitter and base-stealer who dazzled fans over four electric decades in the game. Few names in baseball history evoke the excellence, dynamism, and curiosity of Rickey Henderson. The panther-like strides off first base. The fingers wiggling, a sign of imminent threat-and then Rickey was gone: the powerful headfirst slide into second base in an eyeblink. On and off the field, Rickey was explosive, unique, electric, and the most polarizing and enigmatic player in baseball. In the hands of critically acclaimed sportswriter and culture critic Howard Bryant, RICKEY is one of baseball's greatest and most original superstars finally getting his due. Bryant draws on scores of interviews with many of baseball's top players, managers, and professionals, as well as conversations with Rickey himself and his longtime wife, Pamela Henderson. The result is the first and only book to comprehensively cover the baseball legend's life and full career.

ABOUT HOWARD BRYANT AND RICKEYOn June 7, Mariner Books is proud to publish RICKEY: The Life and Legend of an American Original by Howard Bryant-acclaimed sports journalist and three-time nominee for the National Magazine Award. Bryant is also the author of nine previous books, including The Last Hero: A Life of Henry Aaron, The Heritage: Black Athletes, A Divided America and the Politics of Patriotism, and Juicing the Game: Drugs, Power, and the Fight for the Soul of Major League Baseball. Now, he offers the definitive biography of Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson, baseball's epic leadoff hitter and base-stealer who dazzled fans over four electric decades in the game.Few names in baseball history evoke the excellence, dynamism, and curiosity of Rickey Henderson. The panther-like strides off first base. The fingers wiggling, a sign of imminent threat-and then Rickey was gone: the powerful headfirst slide into second base in an eyeblink. On and off the field, Rickey was explosive, unique, electric, and the most polarizing and enigmatic player in baseball.In the hands of critically acclaimed sportswriter and culture critic Howard Bryant, RICKEY is one of baseball's greatest and most original superstars finally getting his due. Bryant draws on scores of interviews with many of baseball's top players, managers, and professionals, as well as conversations with Rickey himself and his longtime wife, Pamela Henderson. The result is the first and only book to comprehensively cover the baseball legend's life and full career.Moreover, Bryant chronicles the evolution of baseball over the past five decades into the era of free agency, pay equity for Black players, the emergence of napologetically flamboyant Black athletes like Rickey, and resistance to all of this from baseball's overwhelmingly white establishment. Bryant also tells a broader story of Black America, the promise of the Great Migration from the Deep South to the North and West, and the overall influence of sports on American culture, most notably in the context of Rickey's hometown of Oakland, California.Rickey's achievements have long been undeniable. From 1979 to 2003, he played 24 seasons in Major League Baseball with nine different teams: the New York Yankees, the Toronto Blue Jays, the San Diego Padres, the Anaheim Angels, the New York Mets, the Seattle Mariners, the Boston Red Sox, the Los Angeles Dodgers, and four separate stints with his original team, the Oakland Athletics. Widely recognized as the sport's greatest leadoff hitter and baserunner, the so called "Man of Steal" holds the all-time major league records for career stolen bases, runs, unintentional walks, and leadoff home runs. Rickey is the only player in the history of the game to have surpassed a combination of 3,000 hits, 2,000 runs, and 2,000 walks-not Ruth or Cobb, DiMaggio or Mantle, Mays, or Aaron. Inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2009 on his first ballot appearance, he was the American League's Most Valuable Player in 1990, a ten-time American League All Star, and the leadoff hitter for two World Series championship teams: the 1989 Oakland A's and the 1993 Toronto Blue Jays.Grandstander or all-time great?For many years, Rickey's feats on the field were overshadowed by his reputation as a disrespectful underachiever-a player not fully committed to the game or sufficiently deferential to its hallowed traditions. He delighted fans with "Rickey Style"-antics like his "snatch-catch," his meandering "wide turn" approach to the base line after hitting a home run, and his "pick" at his jersey after a particularly satisfying play. But he was also disparaged as an arrogant, self centered "hot dog" who sat out too many games, nursed dubious injuries, and neglected to learn the names of teammates and umpires. Or as the legendarily dysfunctional Yankees owner George Steinbrenner once memorably put it, Rickey too often was "jaking it" (milking an injury). The situation wasn't helped by the mutually antagonistic relationship between Rickey and the press, his habit of shouting "It's Rickey Time!" as he burst into the locker room, or his often-hilarious malapropisms. While playing for the Yankees, for example, he lived in an apartment across the Hudson River from Manhattan in Hoboken, New Jersey, from which he claimed to be able to see the "Entire State Building."But as Bryant observes, the amusement at Rickey's expense was unquestionably fed by racial and class prejudice. For "underneath the laughter was the cruelty of inequity," Bryant writes. "There was no question that Rickey suffered from an early reading disability that had not been addressed, that his education had not received adequate attention, and no question that his athletic ability had reduced the academic rigor required of him in the classroom, allowing him to play sports and not learn." [p. 347]Nevertheless, Rickey's keen intelligence was recognized by none other than renowned Yankees manager (currently New York Mets manager) Buck Showalter, as quoted by Bryant: "Everyone always fixated on Rickey because he wasn't good with words, because he sounded inarticulate, so they assumed he wasn't bright. If you were worried about being made fun of every time you spoke, would you want to give interviews? He spoke in Rickeyisms, but sit down and listen to him talk baseball. Listen to the way Rickey could break down situations, the way he talked about pitchers, the way he used his legs for leverage to take off. Let me tell you, Rickey was a sharp baseball thinker." [p. 334]When the legend becomes factAs the years rolled on, and the scope of Rickey's accomplishments started to come into focus, his public image began to change. In part, this was because of baseball's new emphasis on numbers, which were indisputable. Somehow, a player who supposedly was not truly committed to the game was racking up an astonishing set of stats. The Rickey stories were piling up, too, turning him into one of the game's great characters.Some of the legends swirling around Rickey are true, some are demonstrably false, and Bryant does his best to verify which are which. It's true, for instance, that Rickey was so thrilled by a $1 million signing bonus that he framed the check, forfeiting several months of interest before he deposited it. Notoriously frugal-although he has donated considerable sums to charity and helped to support many family members-Rickey also refused to spend most of the per diem expense money that players receive on the road. Instead, he used it to reward his daughters for their accomplishments in school.Bryant confirms that one of the most famous Rickey stories, involving Mariner teammate John Olerud, is a fabrication started as a joke by a trainer. As a precaution, Olerud, who had recovered from a brain aneurysm as a young man, always wore a batting helmet while playing defense. Rickey was said to have commented that he once had a teammate in Toronto who did the same thing. "That was me," Olerud was reported to have replied-a testament to Rickey's well known obliviousness to his teammates, which made the story ring true despite its falseness.Another story, which may or may not be true, recounts the time Rickey sat down on the San Diego team bus in a seat reserved for Tony Gwynn, the greatest of the Padres. As Gwynn came aboard, the other players started to tell Rickey the rules, but the Padres star brushed the whole thing off. "It's okay," he said. "Rickey's got tenure." "Tenure?," Rickey supposedly replied. "Rickey's got sixteen years."Something else that helped to change Rickey's image was that the sport was catching up to him. Today's teams use terms like "load management," sports corporate shorthand for resting players, a practice Rickey employed for himself when the game wouldn't. It had evolved as managers, GMs, and front offices witnessed unnecessary attrition among players masquerading as machismo or worse, as "professionalism." Case in point: people have been saying for years that Anaheim's supremely talented Mike Trout could turn out to be the greatest player of all time. But after playing at least 157 games for four straight years, Trout hasn't reached 140 games since, and has been plagued by injuries.The evolution of the game, Bryant says, gave Rickey a measure of satisfaction. Ultimately, he had been right, but he could never forget his bitter memories of fights he did not believe had needed to be fought. Only three players in the history of the sport-Pete Rose, Carl Yastrzemski, and Henry Aaron-had played more games than Rickey, and yet for most of his career Rickey had been accused of not wanting badly enough to play. As an undisputed legend, Rickey would now be celebrated for his longevity, and with the commendations came tacit acknowledgment that he had understood the game better than the people who gave the orders. He was vindicated. Bryant gives the last word to Rickey: "Tell me something. How in the hell you gonna steal fourteen hundred bases jaking it? How could you do what I did, for as long as I did, and say I didn't want to be out there?" [ p. 369]At age 63, Rickey technically remains an eligible free agent, having never officially retired from baseball. "I think," he said recently, "I could still help a team."

Dr. Meredith Wills was born on a Major League Baseball Opening Day, but it was not a run-of-the-mill Opening Day: It was the day Henry Aaron tied Babe Ruth's home run record. Her father, who grew up watching Aaron play, went out and bought his newborn daughter a baseball bat. “He was absolutely convinced that I was going to be something in the game,” says Dr. Wills. The elder Wills' vision was prescient. Dr. Wills has been busy over the past several years researching and solving the mysteries within a seemingly simple but beloved object: the baseball. The impact of Dr. Wills' research is changing the game of baseball and what we know about MLB operations. Keelin Billue is hosting this new South Side Sox podcast called “Explain It Like I'm 5 (ELI5),” which is focused on simplifying complicated topics in baseball with the experts who understand the issues best.

I'm Warren Smith and I'd like to welcome you to the MinistryWatch podcast. On today's mid-week “Extra” episode I'll be doing something a bit different.  Regular listeners may recall that a couple of months ago I did a Q&A episode, an episode in which I answered questions about MinistryWatch.  I didn't know how that would go, but I was surprised to discover that it was one of most listened to episodes ever. So today I'm doing that again, except this time I'm focusing on some of the questions I've gotten about the MinistryWatch database, and I am also using this episode to talk with you about a new product we have here at MinistryWatch, and that's the Donor Confidence Score. If you are a regular user of the MinistryWatch database, you already know that we have a database of the 1000 largest Christian ministries in the country at our site.  We call this the MinistryWatch 1000.  The MinistryWatch 1000 database has a webpage for each ministry.  And you'll find a lot of information on those pages.  We publish, for example, financial information going back five years.  We calculate ratios so you can see how much and what percentage of the donations to the ministry get used for fundraising, for management costs, and for asset accumulation. We use those ratios to calculate a Financial Efficiency Rating.  Every ministry in the database is rated from 1 star (the worst) to 5 stars (the best). We also have salaries of senior executives, and statements from the ministries themselves.  We give the ministries a chance to have their say if they disagree with the way they've been rated. If you've never used our MinistryWatch 1000 database, I really do recommend that you go there and explore it a bit.  It's got some really great stuff.  And, I should add, our database is really what makes MinistryWatch different.  We think the journalism we do is different.  But others are doing journalism.  Great organizations like WORLD Magazine and Christianity Today.  But no one does that data-based journalism that we do, or has a database as extensive as ours. The MinistryWatch 1000 database has another feature that we think is extraordinarily important, and that's the Transparency Grade. A ministry can get a Transparency Grade of A, C, D, or F.  We use three criteria do determine the grade: Does the ministry get an annual audit and make it available to the public? Does the ministry release its Form 990 to the public? Is the organization a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability? If we can answer YES to all three questions, we give that ministry an “A” grade.  If it can answer YES to 2 out of 3, it gets a “C.”  If 1 out of 3, it gets a “D”.  And if it can't answer YES to any of the questions, it gets an F. By the way, if you're a numbers geek, like I am, you might be interested to know that about 650 of the ministries in the MinistryWatch 1000 database get an A Transparency Grade.  About 175 of them get a D or F. But one of the things we've become aware of is that no rating system is perfect, or complete.  I'm a baseball fan, and I should mention that I'm specifically an Atlanta Braves fan.  My family moved to Atlanta when I was a kid, and I've been a fan of the Braves through good times and bad.  When I was a kid, watching the Braves, I learned that it is possible to measure the wrong things.  In 1973, for example, the Braves had three players who hit more than 40 home runs:  Henry Aaron, Darrell Evans, and Davey Johnson.  As a team, they were near the top of the standings in home runs.  But they had one of the worst records in baseball that year.  If you measured the success of the Braves by looking at home runs only, you would have been measuring the wrong thing. And this simple truth applies not just to sports teams, but also to corporations, even a rock band or dance company.  Is the most successful organization the one that makes the most money, has a winning record,

Our Halloween episode has Patti briefly revisiting 1995, a very scary year, in which she first built her sportsgrudge against the Atlanta Team. But now she loves “those Hammers guys” including effectively wild Ian Anderson, the magical Eddie Rosario, and the only Austin left standing. Pottymouth reminds us of the treasure that is Dusty Baker, the first manager to take five teams to the postseason, and possibly the only to prune his family vineyards *and* live through the Monterey Pop Festival at age 18 (the family station wagon made it too). Altuve makes moves on postseason homerun records, but Manny being Manny seems safe for now. Get your taco on Thursday - Thanks, Ozzie.Odd for us to give credit to Bob Nightengale but he earns it for not using Atlanta's team name in his USA Today pieces. The Hammers miss an opportunity to truly honor Henry Aaron by not announcing a team name change during the ceremony. Fox makes no effort to Chop the Chop, featuring it in crowd shots. Smuck and Boltz never mention it, or the war chant, while openly discussing the cheating chants.

Guess who's back? Back again? Dawn is back! Tell a friend! When Pete Alonso went off during the Home Run Derby, there was one person I knew I had to bring on the show. And so it is an absolute joy to welcome Outsports editor emeritus Dawn Ennis back to the pod! And lo and behold, her beloved Mets are in first place and getting healthy so that's not the only thing she's excited about... We discuss the All Star Game and how after the latest AL victory, National League fans have begun to view it as the Midsommar Classic. Then we dive deep into the causes of social justice that Henry Aaron symbolized, speculate over whether any random LGBTQ broadcaster can do a better job than Joe Buck (SPOILER ALERT: Yes, yes, sweet Jesus yes!), and go over plans to make Jacob deGrom the first pitcher to be cryogenically frozen between starts. As I try to make clear at the end of the show, having Dawn back means a lot and I'm thrilled to talk baseball with her again!

For several decades, baseball cards were a key staple in a young man's life. Some cherished their Henry Aaron rookie cards and kept them in mint condition, while others clipped their Mario Mendoza card onto his bicycle's spokes.   Author and science professor Brad Balukjian took his obsession a step further: he snagged a wax pack of baseball cards, chewed (and promptly spit out) the bubblegum, and went on an 11,000+ mile journey to track down the players in this particular stack from 1986.   Check Your Brain's Tony Mazur talked to Brad about why he decided to write his book, Wax Pack, and what he not only learned about the former players he met, but what he learned about himself along the way.   Visit Brad's website for more information on the book: https://waxpackbook.com/   Follow Tony on his various social media platforms: Twitter - @TonyMazur Instagram - @tmaze25 Be sure to subscribe to Tony's Patreon. $5 a month gets you bonus content, extra podcasts, and early access to guests.

April 8, 1974. On a humid night in Atlanta, Hank Aaron is poised to make history. On the all-time home run leaderboard, Aaron is tied with the legendary Babe Ruth. With one swing of the bat, he can break Ruth’s record. But not everyone in America wants to see this happen; the threats against Aaron’s life have warranted FBI protection. Yet in front of 54,000 people in Atlanta and millions more watching at home, Aaron steps up to bat. What was it like to be a Black baseball superstar twenty-five years after Jackie Robinson broke the sport's color barrier? And what is the real story—of threats, fear, and danger—behind Aaron’s record-breaking game?Special thanks to Howard Bryant, senior writer for ESPN and author of The Last Hero: A Life of Henry Aaron, and Bob Kendrick, President of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.
