Run Rickey Run!

Rickey Henderson, a Hall of Fame outfielder with the Oakland Athletics, was a big personality who was known for talking in the third-person. Such a privilege is earned, not given.

Rickey Henderson played 25 Major League seasons, is a two-time World Series winner, and has the all-time record for stolen bases at 1,406. As it stands, this record is widely regarded as one that will never be broken.

Run Rickey Run is a fun Chrome Extension that makes a web page look like it was written by The Greatest of All Time


Run Rickey Run changes every instance of first-person pronouns on a web page to "Rickey Henderson," and updates the web page's styling to cool Oakland A's colors!

  • Example: "I don't like it when I can't find my limo" gets changed to "Rickey Henderson don't like it when Rickey Henderson can't find Rickey Henderson's limo."
