Biographical Information[edit]

The switch-hitting outfielder Ken Henderson came up to a San Francisco Giants club that developed such outfield hitting stars as the Alou brothers, Bobby Bonds, Dave Kingman, Gary Matthews Sr., and Garry Maddox during the 1960s and 1970s, not to mention first basemen like Willie McCovey and Orlando Cepeda who also spent time in the Candlestick Park outfield. A very good defensive outfielder, he was also a decent hitter who lasted 16 big league seasons. He hit 20 home runs only once, with the Chicago White Sox in 1974; he also had a career-high 95 RBI that year. Henderson played for both the White Sox and the Chicago Cubs.

He is a cousin of Kerry Dineen.
