Coming as no surprise, Rickey Henderson was elected to baseball’s Hall of Fame this afternoon in his first year of eligibility.

Henderson played 25 major league seasons for 9 teams and along the way accrued some major stats. Henderson ended his career with over 3,000 hits and is the all-time leader in runs(2,295) and stolen bases(1,406).

Joining Henderson in the Class of 2009 is former Boston Red Sox player, Jim Rice who made it in his 15th and final year of eligibility. Rice received 76.4% of votes, only 75% was needed.

Notable names left out of Cooperstown were Andre Dawson and Mark McGuire who’s chances have been hindered by his alleged involvement in steroid scandals.
