Happy Birthday, Hank Aaron
On Hank Aaron's birthday, here's a look at his display at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown. A man of deep character and abundant talent, his 755 homers will remain "the people's record" in baseball's most beloved statistic. His grace dealing with a not-totally supportive public as he approached and surpassed Babe Ruth's total is etched onto the collective memory of baseball fans.
Beloved in Milwaukee as well as Atlanta, this son of the deep south stands as a hero across America. With too many players in the past four decades more into self-promotion or selfish behavior, Aaron's low-key persona and years of consistent performance speak loud and clear.
