DAVE HENDERSON, PARTNER, SMP: Dave Henderson, known during his playing days by his nickname “Hendu,” hit a combined .258 during a 14-year Major League career which saw stops with the Seattle Mariners, Boston Red Sox, San Francisco Giants, Oakland Athletics and Kansas City Royals. A teammate of SMP founder Dave Stewart’s for three years with Oakland, the right-handed hitting center fielder helped his teams reach the World Series four times (in 1986 with Boston and the 1988-90 span with the Athletics), bringing home a ring in 1989. A 1991 Major League All-Star, Hendu reached the 20-home run plateau four times, including his first season with Oakland in 1988 when he set career highs in average (.304), runs scored (100) and slugging (.525) while adding 24 homers. In eight post-season series (four each in the ALCS and World Series) he hit .298. A knee injury suffered in 1992 prompted a premature end to his playing career but he went on to enjoy a successful “second career” as a color commentator for the Seattle Mariners from 1997-2006 and, again, in 2011 and now in 2012, on a rotating basis in both the radio and TV booths.
