overshadowed by the bonds home run chase, but equally worthy, is another record for the guy described as a run walking. there’s no doubt that he’s the greatest leadoff hitter of all time. i started watching him as a big fan of the billy martin-led a’s, at the same time i discovered the great sportswriting of ralph wiley(then of the oakland tribune). next mark for rickey…3000 hits.
