Extra Bases

Thanks for everything, Henry

A quick note of appreciation:

Today was the last game for Red Sox coordinator of baseball information Henry Mahegan. He is headed back to school to pursue his dream of becoming a history teacher and coaching a little baseball on the side.

You know all those great statistical notes we bring you? A good percentage of those came from Henry. The Red Sox have one of the best media note packages in the game and Henry was responsible for crunching a lot of those numbers.

Baseball writers owe guys like Henry more thanks than we could ever express. I can’t count how many times over the years I was a few lines short on a story, grabbed the notes and found just the right nugget to make the story work.

Good luck, Henry. You’ll be missed around Fenway and in the press box. But at least Baseball-Reference.com will move a little faster with you off it.
