        31:11........You know Steve Yeager is telling Aaron, "Hank, the 2nd pitch is going to be right in your wheelhouse, knock it out!"

          As a Yankees fan I feel sickened by the way he was treated. And for those who say "Slavery was a long time ago. Get over it", well, it obviously didn't end with slavery.

                        In 1965 I was an 8-yr old kid in Milwaukee. Henry Aaron was my hero. It broke my heart that my team was leaving at the end of the season. Last game my dad and I went to, we sat in the right field bleachers and saw Hank hit a homer off Sandy Koufax. That's a memory I'll never forget. As an adult today I have a whole different level of respect for the man.

                                  GOD Bless Hank - he did have many more at bats than the Babe but nevertheless this was a great video - he was the Ali of Baseball very unnoticed to this day 2019

                                            Even though some people hated Hank so much, his homers speak for himself.

                                            Hank Aaron is my hero.
                                            As a kid he was my hero.
                                            Still today my hero.
                                            The REAL Home Run King.
                                            Not Ruth or Bonds.
                                            We all know it.
                                            So boo hoo to the racists.

                                                        Maris and Aaron had longer seasons,more at bats,more games,smaller ballparks,and lighter baseball.People know that.Unfair.

                                                      @8:25, whoever that pitcher is/was, I know his life had to flash before his eyes, after he realized that baseball was zeroing in on his cranium, that was a solid hit. I think that's what's overlooked the most about Henry Aaron, he was more than just a HR hitter, he was a great hitter, who just happened to hit allot of HR's...

                                                      Hank Aaron wasn't white! This is why he wasn't as lorded as Ruth. Similarly Hal Blaine's death (RIP) was far more widely reported than the even greater Earl Palmer.

                                                        Hank was so much more than his home run total. He was a complete ball player, the best ever imo.

His lifetime average .304 or so, would have undoubtedly been higher if he wasn't encouraged to stroke the long ball. and stroke the long ball he did lol
