Henderson Further From Walk Record

September 16, 2000

NEW YORK (AP) _ Rickey Henderson isn’t quite as close to Babe Ruth’s walk record as some people think.

While numerous sources list Babe Ruth’s career walk total at 2,056, the commissioner’s office added six walks for Ruth last season after research by the Elias Sports Bureau and baseball’s historian, Jerome Holtzman.

Henderson entered the day six walks shy of tying Ruth’s record.
