OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Rickey Henderson bounced through the Oakland clubhouse from one player to the next, one corner to the other, with a stop at the breakfast table to greet a few more guys before moving on to meet with Daric Barton by his locker.
The high-energy Henderson helped awaken a tired group just 11 hours after losing in extra innings to the rival Texas Rangers.
The Hall of Famer sure has been a positive influence in his role as roving instructor for the reigning AL West champions. From offering instruction on the art of baserunning to hitting techniques and even mental approach, Henderson is doing a little bit of everything while back in his old green and gold A's uniform at age 54.
Baseball's career stolen base leader is loving it.
