Tom Henke (born December 21, 1957 in Kansas City, Missouri) was a Major League Baseball pitcher. He was one of the most dominant closers during the late 1980s and early 1990s.
On the mound, Henke was easily recognizable because of the large-rimmed glasses he wore at a time when many players began using contact lenses. At a height of 6' 5", he cast an imposing figure and dominated batters with his hard fastball early in the count, and his forkball for the strikeout. Henke struck out 9.8 batters per 9 innings pitched over his career, an exceptional rate. His ability as a closer earned him the nickname "The Terminator".
