Dave Henderson Stats

Dave Henderson was born on Monday, July 21, 1958, in Merced, California. Henderson was 22 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 9, 1981, with the Seattle Mariners. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Dave Henderson baseball stats page.

"Everybody talks about the pressure on me for that at-bat (9th Inning Home Run, Game 5, 1986 ALCS), but there was no pressure. Defensive replacements aren't supposed to hit closers. Gene Mauch caught a lot of flak for changing pitchers, but any manager would take that matchup one-hundred percent of the time. Donnie Moore against a defensive replacement who had five at-bats in two weeks? You gotta go with those odds. They're in the Angels' favor. Basically I was looking for a way to get back to our dugout after striking out." - Dave Henderson (Post Game Interview, 10/12/1986)
