Rickey Henderson is a legend in his own time. Though opponents detest him for his flashy, showboating style of play, they respect him as perhaps the finest leadoff hitter ever to play the game of baseball. After breaking Lou Brock's all-time stolen base record, Henderson now writes his revealing autobiography, telling about his relationships with some of the most fascinating figures in baseball.

I read this quite a long time ago. Rickey Henderson was my favorite baseball player growing up. This had lots of good facts and stories that RH fans would appreciate. Read full review

Review: Off Base: Confessions of a Thief

User Review  - Amatullah Richard - Goodreads

Henderson's well known ego comes through loud and clear. Nothing too revealing, interesting, or engaging in this book. According to Henderson, when his teams were good it was because of him. When they were bad it wasn't his fault. Your time is better spent reading the book Clemente. Read full review
