NESN: Dave Henderson, Who Hit Memorable Home Run For Red Sox, Dies At Age 57

RIP. Thank heavens he’ll be remembered for the home run in the Championship Series and not the one he hit in the World Series.

Henderson spent 14 seasons split between five organizations (Red Sox, Seattle Mariners, Oakland Athletics, Kansas City Royals and San Francisco Giants). He slugged 197 home runs in 1,538 career regular-season games and earned an All-Star selection with the A’s in 1991.

The man known as “Hendu” will be remembered as much for his infectious personality as his on-field accomplishments. Red Sox fans certainly won’t forget Henderson’s two-out, two-strike, two-run homer in the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 1986 ALCS. It kept Boston’s season alive and opened the door for the Red Sox to defeat the California Angels in seven games to advance to the World Series.
