HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

I always liked Ken Henderson when he was with S.F. I was disapponted when he didn't last with the Mets. I guess he was slowed by injuries.

Mr. Disabled List. The poor guy had more injuries than Bud Harrelson. Didn't he run into the fence during his first week with the Mets and miss the rest of the season? Perhaps someone can help me with that one.

I was too young to see Ken in his playing days. Ken was a co-worker of mine for a little over a year. A real class act and professional. I wish him the best.

Here's your help! After an amazing spring,the Mets had found their R.B.I. guy. After about a week and 10+ balls caught on the track, Ken ran knee first into the wall in right. Thus ending his brief Mets' career.

Another guy who came to the Mets with a reputation as a solid player and did nothing in blue and orange.

Traded for Dale Murray! There's another forgettable pitcher!

I seem to remember that on opening day he and Montanez doubled back to back to drive in a run. I thought, well I guess those moves have worked out for, at least, one inning! I guess Ken didn't do much else after that, though Willie had a good first year.

Ken was a true professional hitter during his career. He had some bad luck with injuries during his time with the Mets. I remember reading in one of the NY papers that the Met players had named their whirlpool the S.S. Henderson in Ken's honor.
