Rickey Henderson was up to his usual dominating self on Sunday, cracking a home run in the celebrity softball game. For a moment, he thought he had handed his team victory -- until Luis Gonzalez walked off.

After the game, Henderson chatted with CBSSports.com about the home run as well as whether he thinks he can hang with the big boys in the actual All-Star game -- if he was asked to play. (Hint: He can.)

Oh, and whose his favorite baserunner in the game now? The answer won't be surprising -- it's Jose Reyes.

Funny you mention Herschel. Both athletes have been questioned before about their basic mental status. I've heard that other players and coaches have wondered if they're both on the autism spectrum, they just pour everything they have into working out and playing ball. Amazing what a guy can accomplish when he's a little nuts and goes insane for his sports passion. Also, as awesome as Ricky was and yes, maybe he could still play a little bit at 50, but I think Julio Franco could actually start still if given the chance. People forget how solid he was into his late 40s for the Braves.

You may not like his mouth, but the guy always backed it up with his hustle and desire and talent.
Players today have talent, but they don't play with Ricky's desire and hustle. If they did, baseball
would be exciting again.

Him and Herschel Walker are freaks.  They both probably can still play at a high enough level to make a team.  Neither is human most likely.
