Vin Scully Was Woven in the Fabric of the U.S.A.

"I think I can say with great confidence that this guy was the absolute greatest of all time. And more than that, Vin Scully was woven into the fabric of the USA. Once again, a standing ovation for Henry Aaron. Though the confrontation for the second time, Aaron walked in the second inning. He means the tying run at the plate now, though we'll see what downing does. Alice about delivers and his low ball one. And that just adds to the pressure. The crowd going, downing has to ignore the sound effect. And stay a professional in pitches game. One ball and no strikes, and waiting out for your deep and straight away, fast forward is a high 5 in the deep left center field, but they're both back to the city. That was Vin Scully, calling Hank aarons milestone milestone home run. When he passed Babe Ruth for the most career home runs with his 715th Homer, Vin Scully, the beloved voice of the Dodgers for 67 years. Passed away at the age of 94.

AJ Recalls Flipping the Pages of 'Mafia at War'

"Whenever my father would tell me stories of his days as an undercover narcotics cop for the US Treasury, he'd get to talking about chasing mobsters like Joe Gallo, Joe profaci Joe Colombo, a lot of Joe's back then. I was only a kid when he bought me a magazine with a lot of gangsters in it and a bunch of black and white pictures of a lot of guys who got rubbed out. It was called mafia at war. And he'd tell me who he knew and who he chased and which ones used to come to my grandmother's house in Brooklyn and drink her wine and eat her pasta. And eventually he pointed to one hard nosed mean looking gangster in the fedora and an overcoat who was named Harry happy mayon, who was a hitman for Meyer lansky, and a member of murder incorporated. And my father would say, this is a great uncle on your mother's side. I'd say, why'd they call him happy? Because he was a mean son of a bitch. I love that magazine. I used to memorize those guys like kids in my class would memorize them baseball cards. Some kids could tell you how many hits Hank Aaron had, I could tell you how many hits Sal maranzano survived.

"My name is Ryan Clark. I cover the Seattle kraken while also being a national hockey writer here at the athletic with someone like my dad who's 83 who grew up in Jim Crow Alabama. You grew up hearing stories about Henry Aaron. And like in our household, it was such a big name. I mean, he represented someone who frankly was the best of all of us. You know, we think about this man and what he did and how he had to do with this reality, but the reality is, why did he always have to be perfect? You know, you think about the things that Mickey Mantle did when he was a player or Babe Ruth did when he was a player. And these are things that are talked about as part of the quote unquote good old days of playing baseball that if Henry Aaron or Willie Mays or Ernie Banks or Billy Williams, any of those black players did at that time, there would be a national referendum on, do they have the right work ethic? Are we sure that this is the best person to have? There's this conversation that where people say I want sports and politics separate because I need an escape and for the people who their lives are wrapped around politics, you don't get that escape. There were enough white Americans who were terrified and angry at the fact that a black man was going to own a record that they had viewed as this mythological thing. And so to see someone who doesn't look like you at a time where people who don't look like you are being coordinated to another side of town and you see that this black man is about to set a record, hell yeah it becomes political at that point. In some ways, I felt the importance of what I was doing was really significant, but was sin in a signal to the world was telling people that, hey, yeah, all you wanted to do was have the playing field level. Just give me an opportunity. You know, doctor king was marching and the civil rights was at its peak, you know, and we would tell people just give us a chance to drink water. I go to the bathroom, I go to the anyway. You know, and that all those things had something to do with the way. I was doing it for playing baseball. I mean, we think about Atlanta and its history. We can't help but think about doctor Martin Luther King, Ralph Abernathy, Hank, Aaron, but when you look at how things were at the end of his life, not only was a universally respected, but he's someone who gave back to his community. He reaches dreams as a ball player, and then in 1994, he and his wife Billy founded the chasing the dream foundation, the goal, give scholarships to 755 children in need around the country. The errands reached their goal, and then kept funding hundreds of more scholarships. He would constantly tell our leadership that we have to continue to serve more kids, more kids, more kids, that the work we're doing is great. But for Hank, he wanted us to reach every kid possible. When you talk about who are some of the greatest Atlantis of all time, yes, Hank Aaron was born in mobile, Alabama, but he's in that conversation for one of the greatest people who's ever lived in Atlanta and really one of the greatest ambassadors the state of Georgia has ever seen. My name is David Aldridge. I am the editor in chief of the Washington D.C. bureau at the athletic. I was 9 years old when Henry Aaron broke Babe Ruth's record. And I remember watching that happen on a big one of those big TVs with the huge vacuum tubes and things that weighed 700 pounds. It was enormous. As was the moment, I knew it was a big record. I knew that it was a consequential record. I did not know the significance at 9 years old of what it meant to the country that a black man had broken the record, the almost sacred record of one of the greatest white athletes who ever played in sports. And I didn't know that so much later when I read some of the letters that Henry Aaron received. And you get just get a sense at that moment of the real sadness. And it shouldn't have been a sad moment. It should have been a moment where everybody was excited and happy because when you think about it, all Henri are and dead was in a baseball of a bat. You know, he wasn't setting social policy. He wasn't ordering the integration of public schools or making sure that all public accommodations were not discriminatory. He wasn't the director of the equal employment opportunity commission. He was a baseball player. I think always of Henrietta and sadly, not because of his accomplishments, which were Titanic and worthy of praise, but for why our country couldn't embrace him. There's no question in my mind. Even after I hit 755 home runs, I know that I'm black and every single day in this country. I'm reminded that I'm black in some small way. It may not, it may not seem it may seem insignificant to a lot of people, but in my own little way, I know that people are doing a little bit of things to me because of the because of the color my skin. Even as he shattered Babe Ruth's record and became the all time home run hitter, he never got his due, and maybe part of that is personality because he's a quiet man and he doesn't draw a lot of attention to himself. And I think those types of people often get overlooked and it's a shame. Because Henri Aaron was the quintessential American to me. He was the American Dream. He was what this country says it reports to be about that if you work incredibly hard. You can take whatever gifts you've been given. And you can maximize them to the greatest amount of your ability. Pleading on grass, picked up things I thought was a baseball, but it wasn't. But a good lord was had his hand on my shoulder, you know. He looked at me and he said I'm going to make this kid what I wanted to do. And I'm going to make him a baseball player. But there's supposed to be other ancillary rewards to that. You're supposed to be viewed with the type of respect that you've earned and he wasn't. And that says.

"No strikes. It was the second pitch, Hank Aaron turned on it. Swinging. That ball is gonna be. It's gone. It's 7 15. There's a new home run champion of all time and it's Henri Aaron. That rounds the bases and it's this iconic moment that nobody can forget and every time again, every time you see it, I think there are these chills that you get a marvelous moment for baseball, but a marvelous moment for Atlanta and the state of Georgia, what a marvelous moment for the country in the world. A black man is getting a standing ovation in the Deep South for breaking a record of an all time baseball idol. But while the vast majority of America love that day and we still look back at that home run and it's still brings chills when you hear there's a new home run champion in baseball and it's Henri Aaron. That still is so joyful, it's haunting to know it wasn't joyful for him at all, and there was no smiles and no sense of anything other than relief. At the microphone. By saying I thank God it's all over it. And I think maybe after he did it when all of the when all of the celebration was beginning to die down and he saw the people around him, you know, I think then maybe he had a little bit of a of a smile just a little bit of a sense of accomplishment. But honestly, I think that was very tough for him to feel that sense of accomplishment after all that he went through. I love the game baseball. And I felt all alone that if I continue to play that it would give other black players a chance a chance to play and they probably wouldn't have.

"And it literally gave me goosebumps. The more I looked, the more I realized he was beyond great. He was at some other level. He wound up with nearly 3800 hits and that's a lot of freaking hits. It's a thousand more hits than Chipper Jones. It's 2000 more hits than Mark McGuire. It's more hits than Johnny Bench and Hank Greenberg got combined and they're both in the Hall of Fame. So I think about all those hits. And I think about those 755 homers because that's 200 more homers than Mickey Mantle, 200. It's more homers than Edgar Martinez and duke Snyder hit combined, and they're both from the Hall of Fame. But the more I dug, I found other cool stuff too. Hey, Karen had double digit home run seasons at age 20 and age 40. Here the only three players who did that Willie Mays, Ted Williams, Hank Aaron. That's a pretty good start on a Mount Rushmore. Wouldn't you say? And all those home runs he hit for all those years. This man never struck out a hundred times. Then there's total bases. Hank, crushes everyone who ever played in total bases. 6856 total bases isn't just the record. It's 722 more than Stan Musial, who was the next closest player in history. If Stan Musial had hit another 180 home runs, he still wouldn't catch Hank Aaron in total bases. That's a lot of total bases. That's how incredible a hit or Hank Aaron was for two decades. So is it possible to be one of the greatest players who ever lived? And still be underrated? After looking over Hank Aaron's numbers, I think it is. My name is David O'Brien. I cover the braves for the athletic and there's only two guys that I've ever felt this aura around them. And that was Muhammad Ali and Hank Aaron. And Hank Aaron, how's interviewing him the first time at spring training? Now I remember approaching him and it was just, you know, I've done this for 30 years and it was a feeling I've had, unlike any other athlete that I've ever approached, but then he immediately just he smiled and was so warm that that fear or intimidation just as melted away. And you could not believe that you were talking to this superstar is genuine icon. Living in Atlanta for 20 years, you can't overstate the importance of Hank Aaron to this city. And this region the south, I grew up in the south and Hank Aaron, being a black man being the greatest, one of the two or three greatest players of all time, and to do what he did in the south. And then living in Atlanta and seeing Hank Aaron, you know, mementos and hanker and tributes and to see his name on buildings and streets and that kind of thing. I would argue that there is no athlete that is more important to a city that Hank arm was to Atlanta. He was such a huge part of how the culture of the south has changed. I mean, this is a city where you feel the pride of being so much black acceptance here. And Hank's a huge, huge part of that. He helped pave the way for all these other black athletes and entertainers to want to come here to be here. Brian Jordan, you know, it was an all star with Atlanta and Brian said that the reason that he chose Atlanta was Hank Aaron. It was a boyhood idol here. He said, as a black kid growing up, playing baseball, Hank Aaron was the guy. But it was an opportunity for me to meet my hero. You know, the hope, the opportunity he's given so many kids today was amazing. Dominique Wilkins said Hank was a big reason that he came here. Hank was one of the first people. It's probably one of the most instrumental guys and to getting me here in Atlanta. But one for God, like, Hank, I wouldn't have been here because it was Hank who went to turn and said, hey, you need to get this kid by any means necessary. He said people should give their roses while they're alive and that he's glad to see Hank getting them now, but he said Hank should have been put on a pedestal decades ago. And he was right. One of the things that I remember him saying is that you got to set example for people to come at you. And how do you do that? You do it the right way you're doing about being humility, you do it by just doing the right thing. And the right thing, a lot of times, it's hard. And a lot of guys young guys don't know how to do the right thing as far as how they present themselves to people and how they give back to people so to get back at that I've learned over the years has become from the Aaron family. We don't see that much of that anymore today. And he lived in the same house that he bought when he came here in 1966 from Milwaukee, lived in that same house. He died in that house. This week. I'm Joe posnanski, senior writer at the athletic and I've known I got to know Henri Aaron, probably 20 25 years ago any time I would ask him about the home run chase. He would, without fail, talk about how hard it was on him. It was in many ways the worst time of his life. So in 1974, Henry Aaron entered the year one home run behind Babe Ruth's all time record, which at the time, of course, was 714 home runs. And he homered on opening day in Cincinnati to tie the record. And going and out of here. Henry has just tied Babe Ruth in the all time home run parade. The commissioner baseball at the time booed Kuhn was there for that game. He is not only one of the great professionals who has ever played this game, but one of the great gentlemen who has. Congratulations Henry. All he wanted at that moment was to have it over with. Thank you very much and I'm just glad it's almost over with. Thank you. Yeah, this was at a time when he was getting boxes and boxes of hate mail and death threats and his kids couldn't even go to school without a bodyguard. He couldn't leave the hotel room. You know the time was not ready. The country was not ready. So, you know, I had to accept that. All he was doing was bringing joy to people, and yet this hatred was coming at him. And this hatred over something he didn't even want. It was not a home run hitter in the way that Babe Ruth was. He didn't want Babe Ruth's record. He didn't care about that. He always said, you know, his famous quote is, I never wanted people to forget Babe Ruth. I just wanted him to remember Henri Aaron. And the day comes in Atlanta, he steps up to the plate. Once again, a standing ovation for Henry Harris. The places completely crazy and packed. This is the biggest thing that had ever happened from a sporting perspective in Atlanta by far, the whole nation is watching. This is the most hallowed record in the history of, I think American sports, Al downing was on the mound. One ball and.

They've each hit seven hundred fourteen home runs and tonight. Aaron will hit number seven fifteen. The atmosphere should be celebratory and it is but in the clubhouse before the game things are unusually quiet. The braves have decided not to let the press inside. Aaron has been hounded by reporters for months and not just by reporters. He's also received close to a million pieces of mail. A third of them negative. Some of the letters have included death threats from white fans who don't want to see a black man take babe ruth's record people have written that they're going to sneak into the stands with a gun and take matters into their own hands so while aaron knows that this might be the most important baseball game of his life.

Race and Remembrance in Hanks Alabama Hometown

"This is very truths. I'm hank clip off. I received an email one day from the library in my hometown. florence alabama. oh boy. I thought they're finally catching up with me. They're looking for that biography of hank. Aaron checked out in elementary school and never returned but the email was actually a lovely invitation to bring berry truth to town my hometown and record episode there. I kind of liked that idea as i chatted with the library. Folks i mentioned something that's often been on my mind in the many years since left florence for college and career. It was something that started as an observation. Actually a memory. That i really couldn't swear was true. In which became a theory that could improve on this special episode recorded before a live audience at the florence lottery. Dale public library. We're going to explore that something. Now let me begin by locating florence. Its way up in the top left hand corner of the state of alabama and sits along the tennessee river. The town probably reached thirty thousand people when i was growing up. And is it about forty thousand. Now there's much to talk and brag about and florence and in the greater muscle shoals region of northwest alabama where florence is situated. And my memory. Which is what we're about to test here. Is that the shoals region of the state and florence in particular on matters of racial attitudes and race relations were by most measures more progressive than the rest of alabama. Now say that with a lot of pride now a wanna be clear about what. I'm not saying. I'm not feeling woozy. From the glint of moonlight in the scent of magnolias. I'm not saying there was no racism or complete absence of racial violence.

And while at usc rimes was hired as an intern by debra martin chase who was prominent black producer she also worked at denzel washington's company monday entertainment so after she graduated rimes was actually an unemployed script writer in hollywood and to make ends meet. She worked various jobs including as an office administrator. And then a counselor at a job center during this period rhymes worked as a research director documentary. Hank aaron chasing the dream which won the nineteen ninety-five peabody award. One thousand nine hundred. Eighty eight rhymes made a short film called blossoms. Unveils which starred. Jada pinkett smith and jeffrey rate. This is actually only credit as a film director. So that's nineteen ninety eight short film blossoms unveils new line cinema purchased a feature. Script of hers It ended up not being produced at that time but she received an assignment shortly thereafter to co write the hbo movie introducing dorothy dandridge in nineteen ninety nine which earned numerous awards further star. Halle berry. get out. I didn't realize that she colorado so interesting. Oh wait till you hear the the plethora of things that she's worked on.

I didn't know that she wrote that. Get out up saying. I feel like it's been really it was really panned by the next but maybe for them. Okay no sometimes. It's it's sometimes you just want a nice story about friendship road trimming going on a road trip and having a nice time and may be hitting up a karaoke joint. Heck yeah and singing. I love rock and roll. That's all i'm saying is that maybe it's for them. I think lauren has actually seen crossroads. I have felt you know. She wrote that and then the next thing that she worked on in two thousand four was the sequel to the princess. Diaries called the princess diaries. Two royal engagement. Get out. yeah. I didn't realize that she was so like a dummy. I just assumed like shonda rhimes right out. The gate was grey's anatomy but apparently she was introduced are obsolete reduce. So she's working on all these film things in two thousand three. She actually wrote her first tv pilot. Abc it was about young female war correspondents but the network. Turn it down.

Nineteen seventy four. That a black man named hank. Aaron broke a white man named bay. Bruce home run record. One of the most hallowed records in sports that they thought would never be broken by that point in time. What was considered to be the greatest baseball player in history and this moment not only change the course of baseball but the course of the world in history because it was mainstream that a black man surpassed the white man and so it just brought with a lot of amazing things as sept more of black players. I'm sure in some places brought down racism probably somewhere along. The line affected some people's minds whether it was children that were seeing it that were being taught things by their parents to be racist but now they now they're not because of that or maybe even adults who might have been racist but they were like well you know. He's a really good guy he's humble. He can do the same things and maybe they changed their mind and it was not only because of those amazing baseball accomplishments but also his accomplishments philanthropists him and for all the things he did to substantially improve society as a whole so on the twenty fifth anniversary of him hitting that seven hundred fifteenth home. Run to break babe. Ruth's record but seelig created the hank aaron award which was given to the best offensive performers in each league and then in two thousand two fourteen years later he was awarded the presidential medal of freedom. From george w bush. The citation said that he embodied the true spirit of the nation. After that nineteen seventy-three season. Hank aaron continued to play with the braves through the nineteen. Seventy four season during that nine hundred. Seventy four season. His former teammate. Eddie mathews was fired. As coach and hank aaron was upset that he was not offered to position to become the first black manager instead. That post went to frank robinson a year. Later with the cleveland indian. After that hank aaron had little interest in continuing to play for the braves even with their reputation as being progressive in the new south he felt. He never received the backing he desired. And so following the nineteen seventy four season he was traded to the milwaukee brewers of the al to enable them to close out his career in the city that it began..

Reflections On Atlanta Braves Legend Henry "Hank" Aaron

"I could talk about the dignity in the class of hank. Aaron the man the you've been being for an hour easily but i'm a numbers guy and so let me tell you what i did. After hank aaron died i navigated over to his page on baseball reference. And i don't know. I just be held the majesty of this man's career and it literally gave me goosebumps. The more i looked the more. I realized he was beyond great. He was at some other level. He wound up with nearly thirty eight hundred hits. And that's a lot of freaking hits. It's a thousand more history chipper jones. It's two thousand more hits than mark. Maguire it's more hits than johnny bench and hank greenberg got combined and they're both in the hall of fame so i think about all those hints and i think about those seven hundred fifty five homeless because that's two hundred more homes than mickey mantle. Two hundred it's more homers than edgar martinez and duke snider hit combined. And they're both in the hall. But the more i dug i found other cool stuff to hank. Aaron had double digit home run seasons at age twenty and age. Forty here the only three players who did that. Willie mays ted williams hank aaron. That's a pretty good. Start on a mount rushmore. Would you say and all those home runs. He hit for all those years. This never struck out one hundred times. Then there's total basis crushes. Everyone who ever played in total bases six thousand eight hundred and fifty. Six total bases isn't just a record. It's seven hundred. Twenty two more than stan. Musial was the next closest player in history. If stan musial had hit another one hundred and eighty home runs. He still wouldn't catch i karen and total basis. That's a lot of total basis. That's incredible hitter hank. Aaron was for two decades. So is it possible to be one of the greatest players who ever lived and still the underrated. After looking over hank aaron's numbers. I think it is my name. Is david o'brien cover the braves for the athletic. And there's only two guys that i've ever felt this aura around them and that was mohammed ali and hank. Aaron and hank aaron. How's interviewed him. The first time at spring training. I remember approaching him and it was just You know i've done this for thirty years. And it was feeling. I've had unlike any other athlete that i've ever approached but then he immediately just he smiled and was so warm that that fear or intimidation just as melted away. And you could not believe that you were talking to this. Superstar is genuine icon living in atlanta for twenty years You can't overstate the importance of hank. Air to this city and this region the south. I grew up in the south and hank aaron being a black man being the greatest one of one of the two or three greatest players of all time and to do what he did in the south and then living in atlanta and seeing hank aaron you know mementos anchor and tributes and see his name on buildings and streets and that kind of thing. I would argue that. There is no athlete. That is more important to a city than hanker and wants to atlanta. He was such a huge part of how the culture of the south has changed. I mean this is a city where you feel fide of being so much black acceptance here. Thanks a huge huge part of that. He helped pave the way for all these other black athletes and entertainers wanna come here to be here. Brian jordan know it was an all star with atlanta. Bryant said that The reason that he chose atlanta was hank. Aaron and was a boy idle here. He said a black kid growing up playing baseball hank. Aaron was the guy but it was an opportunity for me to meet my hair. The hope the opportunity is given so many kids today. Amazing dominique wilkins. Said hank was a big reason. That he came here was one of the first people. It's probably one of the most instrumental guys into getting me here in atlanta. But one for god like hank. I wouldn't been here. Was hanker went to ted turner and said hey you need to get this kid by any means necessary. He said people should give the roses while they're alive and that he's glad to see him getting them now but he said hank should have been put on a pedestal decades ago and he was right What are the things that i remember him saying is that you gotta set example for people to come at you. And how do you do that. You do the right way you doing about being Have miltie you do it by just doing the right thing and the right thing a lot of times. It's hard and a lot of guys. Young guys don't know how to do the right thing. As far as how they present themselves to people and how they get back to people so to give back experts that i've learned over the years has become from erin trampling. We don't see that much of that anymore today. And he lived in the same house that he bought when he came here in. Nineteen sixty six from the

"That's what we'll leave this story for now. This is only part. one hank. Aaron's life was very substantial. There's a lot of content there so this will be a two parter. I'm gonna take you into the story of how he actually wrote babe. Ruth's homerun record with vin scully on the call and craig sager interviewing him at home plate. It's a beautiful story that i'm sure you will enjoy for we go. I do want to leave you with his amazing amazing feats of baseball glory. He never hit. Fifty home runs in any season but yet was still the home run cake. He had a career batting average of three zero five and may twenty five all star games. Now you may be wondering how he did that in twenty three years. Well there were a couple of years there at the end of the fifties early sixties. That major league baseball was trying to help. The major league. Players increased their pension by instituting two midsummer classics per year. So if you may both all star teams you may four all star teams in two years hence the twenty five in twenty three years got gotta check out the rest of these statues though number one in major league. Baseball and total bases runs batted in an extra base hits number two at bats behind pete rose and number three in hits behind rose and ty cobb third games fourth in runs scored. He won the nineteen fifty seven. Nl mvp to time batting champion. Three time gold glover and those record twenty five all star games. Earning them in every season except his first and last he was inducted into the hall of fame in nineteen eighty to ninety seven point eight percent which still blows my mind that he wasn't voted unanimous as he was nine votes short of the first unanimous choice. Second only to ty cobb in nineteen thirty six now since then mariano rivera in two thousand nineteen became the first player to be unanimously voted into the major league baseball hall of fame and while i disagree because i believe there were many more players before him. That deserve that accolade. He was a great ball player as well and great ballplayers. They're hard to come by and it's even more difficult to come by legendary ball players. That have a huge heart in our humble and down to earth. And that's what hank aaron was. And i want to leave you with a quote from former commissioner bud ceiling. May he rest in peace as well. He said if hank aaron that he is a true hall of famer in every way besides being one of the greatest hank was a wonderful endear person in a wonderful and dear friend not long ago he and i were walking the streets of washington dc together and talking about how we've been the best of friends for years correspondent who would have ever thought all those years ago. A black kid from mobile alabama would break the home. Run record in a jewish kid from milwaukee would become the commissioner of baseball. Well that does it today. Folks i want to thank you for tuning in to the premiere episode of the ball and moods podcast. I sincerely hope.

"It was a sad day in baseball last week. When hank aaron passed away at age eighty six. One of the all time greats sluggers in baseball history. He wasn't amazing player. An amazing person. And when you think about hank. Aaron and his impact on a game it was tremendous. Think about this hank. Aaron played in the negro leagues hank. Aaron came up to the big leagues and was a star from day one. And when you look at his body of work. It is an incredible incredible degree of consistency. When you think that hank aaron batted three oh five. Seven hundred and fifty five home runs almost averaged hundred. Rbi is twenty three seasons and think about this. If you took away as seven hundred and fifty five home runs from his hit total he still would have three thousand hits. Which by itself get you into the hall of fame so not only does he have three thousand hits. He has a five hundred home. More than five hundred home runs. Those two are markers for me that automatically get my vote and then when you think about what he had to go through to become the homerun champ and the hey and the threats and the racism that was pointed towards him. Think about that People saying that they were going to shoot him. Kill his kids and this guy never never came undone never lashed out at people never got angry. Just kept playing ball kept his head down. He is definitely someone you can admire. And then he did weeks that milestone passing babe ruth and what a monumental moment that was when hank aaron became the all time home run king and i know people some people say he's still my home run king and is not barry bonds and i don't really wanna get into the whole debate about this. This is about hank. Aaron and what he did. I respect what hank aaron put up his numbers he put up but in the record books he's number two and that's where he is and that's what i respect and there's nothing wrong with being number two when when you put up the body of work that hank aaron has done he will be missed. What an impact. He's had and the grace and the dignity everything he play with and he was a world series champion and he was a steady as a as a as a get. Never hit fifty home runs. How can a guy play twenty years. Hit all those home runs and never had those big years over fifty. It's it's an amazing amazing accomplishment. And hank aaron will definitely be missed

This woman gets it. So 855 to 1 to 4 to 27855 to 1 to 4, CBS. Now let me share with you. Some of the craziest statistics on Hank Aaron. And I know it's 2021. You're like, Wow, is Laura's really starting to show with the history lesson? Yes, Yes, I am. I am going to start show with a history lesson on Hank Aaron, because some of this stuff is just ridiculous. Some of this stuff. Shouldn't I mean, all right, let me give you some of the staff here, okay? That I think are wonderful and crazy and really do make you think about what it is that that we saw. First Let me give you a quick anecdote. And something about Hank Aaron. That should have precluded him from being The all time home run King. Do you know that Hang Aaron came into professional baseball hitting cross handed? And if you're listening you like we were talking about. So you're right. Think about being a right handed batter. Where your left hand is on the bottom of the bat. Your right hand is your top hand. Thank used to do with the other way. Which is right in is the bottom and his left hand on the top. Yeah. He would seem to restrict motion. Would seem to restrict motion. And he started in the business. Shooting that way. Think about the the actual adjustment that has to be made. He hit at the professional level. With one of the most basic things about how to hit If you're even talking about like bottom hand or top hand hitting Fact that he used to be cross handed. He hit the ball, so you start there. You start with, Okay, You're going to go compete with some of the greatest pictures that have ever pitched in the Negro leagues. And you're gonna find your way You're gonna you're gonna do well at that. Find your way to making it to Major League baseball. With that being one of the single most important adjustments that one could make as a batter. That's sort of that, right there says stop him dead in his tracks, but he continued to persevere. So let's talk about the numbers about Hank Aaron. I actually think you know more. I think about it Sunday morning. It's a good time. You just kind of relax and think about players have you ever done if you'd done this statistical thing? Have you ever gone down a rabbit hole? I do this all the time. I love baseball. I know that you and I are getting a chance to get to know each other over this last month when I've been doing this show. Someone covered football. And if you give me the choice, I prefer to cover football like on a day to day basis. That was the thing that I liked covering. But my first love will always be baseball. My grandfather played in the Negro leagues. He and my father kind of passed down this love of baseball to me. It's my first love. Go down rabbit holes all the time. Just looking at great players like looking up the numbers of Lu Garrick. Looking up Stamm usual numbers and you try to figure out like how some of this stuff was even possible in the same thing holds true. For Hank Aaron. All right..

Sometimes you can have a tendency when you're talking about legends who were before your time, just like sort of acknowledge, and they were great.

You know messages sent his way and tough, just conditions in general like living conditions, too. You get to the the career that he did and become the all time home run leader still recognized by many as the quote unquote, True home run King and as I've said, you know when, when I see him interviewed or I saw him interviewed.

Keep losing great players and great people along the lines of Hank Aaron. Yeah, and the Hall has not had that many. People have been trying to the hall. I guess you know, honorees die at one point, you know, the same year. I mean, that is, you know, that's pretty crazy like how many people may just kind of feels like we're have a new name every single lead on for his. I saw a graphic on SportsCenter earlier. That kind of listed almost is like, you know, like a rock like a lineup like Here's Your outfielders who passed away in 2000 and 20 and Um, you know, kind of went. The list went on and on. It is really crazy when Some of the greats of our game are all leaving around, leaving the world around the same time, but certainly their legacy isn't And I think for a guy like Hank Aaron who, when we are in such a polarizing time in our country when we are talking about people who have broken Um you know, the glass ceiling of sorts or racial barriers? Whatever you want to call it, you know? Think about it. What do we play there on the rejoin? That was the that was the home run call for when he broke Babe Bruce home run record at that point when he got 7 15. We're talking about that. And you know, he got a standing ovation. This black man from the South got a standing ovation. At a time where that was unheard off. That was the point that that was that was literally deemed controversial. Think about that. That wasn't that long ago. That was in the sixties and seventies. Freddy. That was not that long ago, which I think is why he's gonna always be relevant. Still as we're trying to, like work, you know, you know, work through our our own issues with race in this country, and especially where it blends aligns with sports. It's more relevant now than it's ever been. A lot of people don't want to hear about race and the racial conversations and the racial aspects and There's too much that has gone on in the United States for you to ignore that you may not want to deal to to hear about it. But plenty of those things that happened. And if anybody suffered any more than Hank Aaron when it comes to something like that. Just doing his thing and going about his business. I'm sort of playing people understand exactly kind of shoes. He had the walk in as a part of his life. What do we like to get to when it comes to Super Bowl 55?

"Of Hank Aaron. He's the only man I idolized more than myself. Baseball's one time home run King. Has passed away today at the age of 86, for as much as he may have transcended the game with his talent and his courage while facing death, threats and hatred during his quest for that home run record. He was always quick to acknowledge the people that he called the real home run hitters that came before. Also feel especially proud to be standing here. We have some years ago Jacket Robertson and Roy Campanella. Prove the way and made it possible for Frank and me and for other blacks hopeful in baseball. They proved to the world. Man's ability is limited only by his lack of opportunity. Frankly, Frank Robinson, though he was most known for his prodigious power, he was so well rounded, inconsistent hit more than 40 homers nine times drove more more than 100 runs, 11 and another five seasons top. 90 was an All Star every year from 1955 to 75, he's baseball's all time leader in R.

Get your autograph and then move on. But I also remember from that day and me being a kid as well. That any kid that was there. Hank Aaron took his time to talk to that child. That was so neat for me. Just to be able to talk to him for was what? Probably 35 minutes And I left that day. Learning more about the importance of Hank Aaron from my dad was telling me And for so many years Growing up as a kid in my childhood home. My parents still live in that house and the photos still there. There is a photo of Hank Aaron on the iconic 715th home run and he signed it. I have something I look at every day when I woke up as a kid. That photo. It was just such a neat experience at such a young age to meet someone that you know is bigger than life. And that is almost Hey, just someone that You. Don't you hear all the legendary tales? That When you actually meet a person. You just can't believe that you're actually meeting them. So this is sad Day, but it also should be a day of celebration. It should be a celebration. Of Hank Aaron, and we should learn from Hank Aaron and what he taught us. And really Hank Aaron taught us Just be the best version that you can be, and there's going to be things that are out of your control. And ultimately We could stand up. Racism. Racism shouldn't never occur. But for Hank Aaron, he had to face it on the biggest stage. With death threats, people threatening to kidnap His Children. And he got to the ballpark every day. And just continued even with all that he was facing to hit home run after home run after home run, and that was his way. He was allowed to be able to stand up to all this hate. So my condolences to his family. My condolences to baseball fans around the world, and they Hank Aaron Rest in peace..

"Great to have you on the program today. Hi. Thanks. Rush. Mega Gen X Bittles. Um I wanted Tolo talk to you today. I heard you earlier saying about 75 million people watching. I think the left knows that And they've got this impeachment to be a big bookie theater. To go on for a while and ah in the last minute and the last throw of the game, they'll I think Biden will throw a Ah pardon note. To trump and, Ah They can look like the great guy. If you can, if you can do this and flip just half of percent of moderates. Um Then you're talking 375,000 boats out of that 75 million, which could be enough to go through the next election. It's my theory. It's an interesting theory. I hope there's that story. I meant to do this. Um, yeah. Hank Aaron has died. I'm meant to get of this in the first part of the program, he took the covert vaccine two weeks ago. He took the covert vaccine two weeks ago and has died. He did not have Koven. Yeah, let me uh I have not have not stopped to consider whether or not Biden would would would pardon Trump. Um I don't know. Don't know if that would buy Biden some support among Trump supporters or not. And that would be the only reason by that would do it. I don't think there's any evidence that the country is divided because well, there is, but they're not going to recognize it. See, that's that's your theory is fascinating. But it would require Biden somehow believing that the country could be unified if he did that. And the Democrats. Position is that Trump doesn't have any support. That everybody hates Trump. They've been trying to make that the reality for four years and they think they've pulled it off. Trump doesn't have any support. He doesn't have any lingering somewhere. Yeah, They're in denial about that, but they're there. Their official stance is that the country is not divided. Because of overwhelming love and support for Trump. Trump's support is a bunch of cultists. And those people need to be de programmed not played, too. So it's an interesting theory. I I'm not certain that Biden Sees himself as Gerald Ford. Who pardoned Nixon, but we'll keep it open is a possibility. Yeah. Hank Aaron was 86 years old. He, um Hall of Famer. He went to Morehouse screw all of medicine in Atlanta with his wife, Billy, to receive the first of two doses of the Madonna vaccine. The Madonna vaccine is a double dose. He died two day. January. 22nd 86 Years of all the years of age. He passed away this morning. CBS 46 Atlanta has learned he leaves behind an indelible legacy on end off the Baseball field. There are there are no reports. In mainstream media about how he died, but it's conspicuous. That he was given the covert 19 vaccine two weeks ago. It was highly publicized at the time because he did it on camera. He did it on TV. As a way to encourage African Americans to take the vaccine because they are reluctant to do so. African Americans are reluctant to have their photos taken for photo idea. They're definitely reluctant to take this vaccine. So the story on on January 5th Woz that he got his vaccine shot on Tuesday on camera in the hopes of inspiring other black Americans to follow his lead. He said. It makes me feel wonderful. I don't have any qualms about this at all. He was not sick. He was not reported to have Have the covert virus was not suffering from it, but he did pass away today. After he got the vaccine two weeks later. Back in just a period. No read about it in the paper tomorrow rush on the EI Be network..

"I want Theo finish up the show today. Circling back and people are just tuning in. We've lost the great Hank Aaron 86 years old 86 years old and the Braves have announced just a few minutes ago that passed away peacefully in his sleep this morning. Yes. Uh, yeah, I'm reading more about it. And as I said, I do I look back at my memory. I lived in Memphis at the time, and it was a huge deal when he broke Favorites record. Huge American deal, and at first I was like I was watching that game. I know it. But then the game is in Memphis, and it was a Monday night Maybe they broke in. It was such a big deal, but it's quite possible that I saw it on the news right afterward or something. But it's it's crystallized In my mind. It was a huge American event. And he's known for that. But he still holds a bunch of records in other areas as well. It's total bases and RB eyes are still his. And when he retired, he was also the leader and extra base it so he was not Everybody think know everybody knows the home run record. He was a dominant complete hitter. And the R B I record. I bet made that that may last for for decades, and it's just the consistency year over year and the is probably the greatest thing that ever happened to me in my career was a couple of years ago, when Chipper Jones one of the Hall of Fame, Me and Chris Camp, and you're taking Bath mat, a chance to interview Mr Aaron And I asked, Would you like to go to his house and do it? Yeah. Yeah, I think it would s O. I mean, Hank Aaron's leaving nervous like whether whether Chris Sants route laid out or anything like that was there was no food. Okay, But yes, That's his nervous, I think is that I've been since I first got on the radio, and the last thing I asked him was Mr Aaron, What do you want? Your legacy to be think the legacy should be that he gave it everything that he had. You know, baseball was a game to him. People look at me and said How did he treat baseball treated baseball? Just like I wanted to be treated just like anybody would treat a job, you know? It is. Mm hmm. It's something that I felt like God had given me the talent to play it. And I was not going to abuse it. And I was gonna do their best to that possibly could do the most humble human being slashed legend. I know that you could ever meet Just the nicest man in the world. You know, I think about it now that we've now that he's passed away, you know, I think about how people are there people in history. And, uh, some people are just the absolute right person to be there. You know, he was the absolute right person. When we played the call. We came out just from you. Jared said. Hey, you want to play the the call where he breaks Babe Ruth's record coming back out of the spot. So I was like, Yeah, Yeah. Yeah, of course. I haven't heard it in a million years and I kind of got jolted when Vin Scully said eyes it. It's something a crowd. 50,000 people in Atlanta are giving a standing ovation and they brought up his race. And it kind of 2021. It's sort of startled because I'm not. I'm not used to that. But if you go back to that, and this is what I'm getting, too, about him being just the absolute right person to be dealing with that kind of history. I didn't remember. It is the first thing but now looking back, there was a lot of that going on. He did have to deal with the You know, it was the racial thing. Babe. Ruth was white. And I do remember that there were people and that was something and it but I do not remember Hank Aaron. Publicly even looking cross or saying a cross word to anyone or being anything other than just this, Uh, very, very positive force, which must have been very, very difficult at the time because he was getting death threats and all that kind of nonsense. I don't know how a human bottles that up It doesn't hate humanity coming out on the other side of that. And Mr Aaron, the nicest man ever. And yes, you are right. The perfect person for the perfect time and It is a shame that the official record does not say Hank Aaron is still the home run King. It's Barry Bonds, but when we went to the Hall of Fame, they made it very clear. Hank Aaron has a shrine in Cooperstown and Barry Bonds does not. 11 feels very, very, very.
