Hammering Hank! Got to watch him hit one into the bleachers at Wrigley. It was great when he broke the record.

The amazing thing about him is he did it all without drugs !!
He also did it as a black man breaking Babe Ruth’s record in the early 70’s....in the Deep South. I cannot imagine what he and his family were dealing with off the field. They made a movie about how stressful it was for Maris to top Mantles single season record and the garbage he put up with. I imagine that was not even in the same ballpark (excuse the pun) of what Hank Aaron dealt with. Amazing feat. Might be the best hitter ever to play the game.

Class act.
As a young kid growing up in the south in the 70s playing little league ball, he was one of my idols.
