Word! From little league on up, I was Rickey. My all time fave.
Your feelings is your feelings.
Still interesting wording.
Breh I was in a little league in Coney Island, Brooklyn, NY. that was 98% white. Them dudes wasn’t ready for my level of hot dogging learned from Rickey. My pops taught me the basic fundamentals, but this older cat on the block named Hollywood taught me how to be Rickey. My whole Rickey act took that league by storm, they loved and hated me. I was the only kid getting heckled by older people, nothing crazy. Also, when it was my turn to be catcher, I styled behind the plate like Tony Pena, and pitched like Nolan Ryan.
Hollywood told us to “put mustard on it”, but you better know your fundamentals.
I couldn't style cause I couldn't hit the ball for shyt.
Drew walks and stole bases like a madman though. Never swung on bad throws, if you couldn't get 3 pitches over the plate then you were pretty much putting me on 3rd base automatically. I bet I had 3x as many stolen bases as I had hits.
Joe Morgan was so weird to me. How do you not know how to describe that Joe? You are also from Oakland.
I remember Tim Carver and them cac Baltimore fans booing Ricky at the ‘93 all star game for doing that.
Ricky Henderson played with a jherri curl in the early 80s. I’m picking him, even tho Billy Simms probably told his white offensive linemen to give him five on the white side.
We not gonna talk about that screen cap not being from Harlem? But I gotta go with Ricky. He the reason I used to try and steal third base every baseball video game, even though that shyt be hard as hell.
Billy was one of those dudes who gave two handed daps and probably wore Old Spice cologne
Growing up in the bay in the late 80's early 90's going to the coliseum to watch the A's play was the shyt. The bash bros . Dave Stewart, Eck, Walt Weiss . And of course the GOAT "The Rickey"
Lol at you including Walt Weiss amongst all those other legends
Lol he was my guy. I remember there was a section in the stadium called Weiss Watchers
Damn I miss 80s 90s baseball
Me too bruh. I don't even watch that shyt now. Rickey running the bases, Jose and Big Red slapping shyt out the park. Dave staring nikkas down . Eck closing up shop .
Ricky is the 80s
