Rice, Henderson do Letterman’s Top 10 tonight


And we’ve got the list, as the two newest voted into Baseball’s Hall of Fame, Jim Rice and Rickey Henderson (don’t forget, he ended his career with the Dodgers, which probably put him over the top), read it aloud on “Late Night with David Letterman” (tonight, 11:35 p.m.), while showing up in New York to do the show this afternoon.
