COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - Rickey Henderson and Jim Rice are in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
The two former left fielders were inducted Sunday along with the late Joe Gordon.
The 50-year-old Henderson played for nine teams in a 25-year career and led the American League in steals 12 times. He holds the career record for steals with 1,406, runs scored with 2,295, unintentional walks with 2,129 and homers leading off a game with 81.
The 56-year-old Rice was elected in his final year of eligibility. He batted .298 with 382 home runs and 1,451 RBIs from 1974-89 with the Boston Red Sox. He's the only player in major league history with at least 35 homers and 200 hits in three consecutive seasons (1977-79).
