"Skenke Henke"

It's always good when you can combine two things you love.

1992 Leaf #159

Tom Henke had a pretty good career.  He is currently 17th on the all-time saves list, was a 2 time All-Star and saved two games in the 1992 World Series which the Blue Jays won.  But that's not why he's here.  He's here because he reminded me of an episode of Seinfeld called The Apology, in which actor James Spader plays recovering alcoholic, Jason Hanky, who George refers to as "Skanky Hanky".  Here's some excepts:


  1. OOhh me likes Henke. He was awesome!

    Plus, he has the 5th best career ERA in save situations (2.40) among pitchers with 200 or more saves. The only pitchers with a lower ERA are - Mariano Rivera, Joe Nathan, Hoyt Wilhelm, and Sparky Lyle. Yes, this means he was better in save sit's than Goose Gossage, Bruce Sutter, and Dennis Eckersley.

  2. Henke rocked in RBI baseball! I wish they had been able to include his glasses back then... -Andy
