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.
Remembering Atlanta Braves legend and longtime MLB home run king Hank Aaron
"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

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..

As was Hank Aaron, as was clean on Jones and as Woz Willie Mays like Willie Mays, like everyone's goes, How do you root for the Mets and Yankees? I go real simple. I love Willie Mays. He got traded to the Mets The year I started following baseball. Willie Mays was like the only thing I knew he got traded to the Mets in the first game ever went to was a doubleheader. Old Yankee Stadium. Yankees won both games. I like both teams. It's okay shoot me for people say you can't Yes, I can. So but anyways, yes, I got Hank Aaron highlights. Hey, care, So I remember everybody was losing their mind because Hank Aaron was closing in on Babe Ruth's home run record. And a lot of the stuff is you If you ever see the Hank Aaron documentary of the Hate Mail, and for me as a kid, I could never understand Why that why would you hate someone for breaking records? Just great. It's a 78 years old thinking this Just like I just thought it was exciting, Like great. I just start following baseball as this is going on. This is fantastic, and everybody's gonna know it's terrible because he's black. I go. So what? He's a great baseball player. You're an idiot is seven years old. I'm calling people who are much only be idiots always get my butt kicked. It's just like the stuff that he went through and the hate mail and this security and if you ever see the footage of him when he broke the record, it was on my still remember washing like some old sister. It was Monday night baseball Al Downing pitching for the Dodgers thrown against Hank Aaron. He hits the home run, and as he circle a second base, two guys jump out of the stands and start running with him and you'll see in the highlights. And at first he thought that like literally because one it's in Atlanta, Georgia, of all things that you know, possibly three good, but then they were high fiving him. He was looking at him off and then goes into and scores and breaks the record and then goes on to hit. Another 40 home runs in his career into me, and my mind is great. And I think Barry bonds if he never did the roids, I think probably could have had a great career. But to me, that record is Taurus. I still I still in my mind. Think it's Hank Aaron. You could yell at me all you want her at me all you want, I'll talk to you have a debate. I don't think there was a lot of steroids and stuff going on in the sixties and seventies. I don't know. I just know that a very bonds went from being 6 £170 of 612 40 with a size of a boulder. But so a good player very discreetly, and he belongs in the Hall of Famer himself.

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..

"You know, I think there's this temptation to write a fairy tale about Hank Aaron. You know, to talk about his life in this rosy way. And it does not do justice to the hatred and the vileness that he had a face. It's impossible to explain or summarize the type of horrors that he faced. What I'm saying is his very right to exist. Was challenged at every single turn that he endured it and he kept on is not minimized The awfulness of it. It shows how strong he was it just how special he was. It shows how dignified he Woz. I know some of you when I say what Like, What did he deal with? How bad was it? Looking at sweet right now from Stephen Holder. In the Tweet reads this old quote from Hank Aaron in The New York Times. Obituary just left me speechless. I have not seen this before. This is an excerpt from The New York Times quote. It's a quote Quote as the 20th anniversary of his home run feet approached in the early 19 nineties, he told sports columnist William C. Rhoden of The New York Times. Quote. April 8th 1974 really led up to turning me off on baseball. Quote. It really made me see for the first time a clear picture off what this country is about. My kids had to live like they were in prison because of kidnap threats. Had to live like a pig in a slaughter camp. I had to duck. I had to go out the back door of ballparks. I had to have a police escort with me all the time. Was getting threatening letters every single day all of these things and put a bad taste in my mouth and it won't go away. They carved a piece of my heart away. That's Hank Aaron. And this is what he was dealing with. As he was chasing Babe Ruth. His kids had to live like they were in prison because of kidnap threats. Death threats. Kidnap threats, quote I to live like a pig in a slaughter camp. Had a duck had to go out the back door ballparks. So when you think about Hank again, there's that temptation, right? This fairy tale like he had this fairy tale existence anything but Anything but 1 806 368686 is the number one Dyle. Go to Madison, Wisconsin, Spencer Spencer. Nice to have you on. How are you?

All right, so fast forward 15 years. My son and I saw him. I get emotional. My son and I heard the home run Derby. Appear in the twin cities where I live now. We're both rock and powder blue. We see the hammer and his wife, Billy, getting onto an elevator. I got a baseball in my hand. Come up to him. Mr Aaron. Sample B by actually talking to you. Would you please autograph the ball for me? He says no. What had followed my son. I said you won't sign for me. Will you sign for my son?

Why say that His very existence was challenged at every single turn. Like on the surface. We're talking about somebody just playing baseball. But because he played it so well. Racist and the venom came flying for him. Death threats living in hiding kidnap threats of his kids. Police escorts One of the greatest ballplayers ever having to exit stadiums through the back door. Living in fear. Did I say death threats? Kidnapping threats. Why Because he was really good at baseball. Because of his race. And he said it was at that point was at that time that I realized. Impart what this country was about, and they carved out a piece of my heart. That's sad. It's really sad and really troubling. The fact that he endured that here's the thing about this too. It's how dignified this man was This how strong this man was the fact that he endured all of that. Had the impact on people that he had Says so much about him. I mean the burden and the weight that he had to carry. Face all of that, and he carried himself the way he did. Says all you need to know about the dignity and the strength and the courage of the man. That said a lot about a lot of us. About the country. To be the best thing ever right. He's got was chasing an icon. This guy was chasing the most hallowed mark in all of sports. It should have been the best thing ever. And in some ways it was one of the worst things ever. All right.

"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.
