Yawkey Way Report would like to extend it’s deepest condolences to the friends and family of former MLB-player Dave Henderson, who died suddenly of a heart attack this morning at the age of 57.
Dave Henderson, nicknamed “Hendu”, had an MLB career that spanned 14 years and five ball clubs—Seattle Mariners, Boston Red Sox, San Francisco Giants, Oakland Athletics’ and Kansas City Royals. Henderson helped the Red Sox reach the 1986 World Series with his two-out, two-strike home run which he hit in the top of the ninth inning in Game 5 of the 1986 ALCS. Henderson was a one time World Series Champion and made his last MLB appearance on July 29, 1994 for the Kansas City Royals. From 1997 to 2006, Dave Henderson was a color commentator during Seattle Mariners’ radio and TV broadcasts.
We at Yawkey Way Report, and Red Sox Nation, join the millions of MLB fans across the country in mourning the loss of this great player and great man.
Rest in Peace Hendu.
