Dave Henderson, the 14 year veteran who won a World Series in 1989 with the Oakland A’s, passed away on Sunday at the age of 57, due to a heart attack.

Henderson, an All-Star outfielder with the A’s, started his career with the Seattle Mariners from 1981-1986 before being traded to the Red Sox in ’86 and helping Boston reach the World Series with a clutch home run in the ALCS against the California Angels.

Hendu, known by family and friends, played with Boston for two seasons before moving on to the Giants (1987), then A’s (1988-1993) and finishing his MLB career with the Royals (1994).

In 14 seasons, he batted a combined .258, with 197 home runs, and 708 RBI’s.

R.I.P Hendu and thanks for the memories.
