The 21-year-old made his MLB debut late in the 2022 season and hit a home run in his first at-bat.
So naturally, the young star is generating a lot of hype, as are the youthful Orioles.
This afternoon, Henderson stopped by MLB Network to discuss the early stages of his career, revealing what it was like to homer in his first Major League at-bat, and what he is doing this offseason as he prepares to make an impact for the young Orioles in 2023.
There's a lot of hype building around the @Orioles and this guy is a big reason why 📈@G_Henderson2 stopped by #MLBNHotStove to recall homering on his Big League debut and break down how he is preparing for his first full MLB season.@adnansvirk | #Birdland pic.twitter.com/H2ai6EpOYT

Henderson talked about what that first home run meant to him.
He discussed how exciting it was for him to have his family present to see such a great moment.
After the game was over, Henderson called his parents, who congratulated him on his first major accomplishment.
Henderson also spoke about what it means to be a professional baseball player, revealing that from a young age, it was what he wanted to become and that he constantly dreamed of being able to experience such a cool moment as a child.
One thing Harold Reynolds noticed during the interview was that Henderson did not have the same hair flow as he did the night of his first home run.
In a signature move, Henderson had let his helmet go and trotted around the bases as he showed off his flow.
But the 21-year-old star told Reynolds not to worry, and that he’s working on growing it back for spring training.
