This Picture is important to me because it involves my favorite baseball team and player. The game of baseball taught me life lessons. Baseball is America's pastime.

Rickey Henderson, the “Man of Steal”, blazed a trail across baseball with his baserunning and hitting ability. In 1982, Henderson set the modern major league record for stolen bases in a single season with 130.
