Some of the honors that he has received over the span of his career include the Golden Glove in 1981and the American League MVP Award in 1990.

In the championship series leading up to the A's appearance at the 1989 World Series, his performance was so superior that he was named the series' Most Valuable Player.

Some of Henderson's records include the major league benchmark for most career bases stolen, most home runs as a leadoff batter, and most years leading the league in stolen bases. In addition, he holds the A's all-time records for most runs, most hits, most doubles, most stolen bases, and highest batting average.
