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

"They weren't playing for the money, right? I mean, that That was certainly a thing with many I want was lucky enough. This is probably the most amazing day I've ever been able to spend in my professional career. Was lucky to produce a panel. This was in Cincinnati in 2015 for the Major League Baseball All Star game. We did a panel for MLB network and it was really nice. Henry Aaron, Sandy Koufax and Johnny Bench in a room just the four of them and Bob Costas narrated a conversation with them and You know, the conversation was free flowing and absolutely incredible. I think I was. I was one of you know, six other people in the room to witness that conversation, which was absolutely as a baseball geek, one of the coolest things you could ever imagine in your life. But the conversation often turned to the fact that they had to Find other ways to make money later in life, which is why autographs was such an issue to this day for someone like Sandy Koufax, right? It wasn't about the money like it is today, and these guys would all have hundreds of millions of dollars in today's times. You did also spend some time with Hank Aaron himself in making the movie And when I see him interviewed over the years and heard him speak the word that Comes to mind for me from the outside looking in. It is dignified. He just seemed a man who carried himself with a lot of dignity. But what was your personal experience with with Hank Aaron? You know one on one. Henry. Did you find the perfect work?

Um, it was It was really just an amazing day. And you know, every interaction that I had, In fact, I think really Good way to look at it. We had on our crew. Our main VP for that film was a gentleman named out on to who you might know, Robin and hey was the only of our crew the only DP who is African American. And after the film wrap Henry and set him a personal note. He autographed picture and said, You know, to Alex on you from Henry Aaron, you know, thanks for making this film and really just think that gesture alone, not asked for unprompted sort of epitomizes the class and dignity that someone like Mr Aaron has It was obviously a story worth telling. Then, now and forever as Henry. Hank Aaron, Um, legend died yesterday at the age of 86. Josh really appreciate you coming on and helping to, you know, I think illuminated to some people who obviously didn't see him in real time. Just what he went through how good he was and what You know his life and legacy in the game will meet.

And, by golly, if he was going to be on the bench, he was going to be comfortable.

"All the way down into the keys. And I haven't heard the giant specifically on it, but that could be a case of the giant spinning whole spring thinking, hey, this guy doesn't get to us. We're not gonna spend a lot of time. Worrying about it because he's supposed to go. Four two seven six. Head of where we. I like it. I like the speed. And I love the Billy Hamilton comparison. I'm Billy Hamilton fan if he can only hit. Yeah. Okay. C J Abrams. That's a good one shortstop from rose. Well, Georgia are that's when it could fall out here. We have a lot of interest in Andrew von at Cal. He's predicted in the top two or three I imagine. But a right handed hitter, little bit undersized. What do you think about Andrew von? So I love him. He's second on my board behind Adly reprimand, the catcher at Oregon state, and I've said a few times, west minutes, one, I don't think is all that far behind in the big differences with Richmond. You're getting the positional value of a no doubt catcher Russia that they could get into catcher, but on is the best pure bat in the class. His swing reminds me a bit of poke gold Schmitz. It reminds me a bit of Reese, Hoskins she's got exceptional plate discipline, but it's not it also works account to try to get himself into good hitters counts. So he can find a pitch to drive, and I do think there's real power there. You nailed the two things that people. Say when they're trying to dock him a little bit one is he's under stick seat. It's not a great profile is under sixteen breaking care, so not an ideal profile, and he's probably first base only, but unless forty eight hours I keep hearing the teams are he's worked out a little bit at third base teams or at least exploring that possibility if news things if you're scouting department, you think there's a twenty percent chance. This guy can play Thursday. Maybe he really is the best player in the trash class. I think he may. He might go first he could go third. He goes, no lower than stiffed, which is the Tigers beautiful very good. I think it's terrific. I I'm I just think baseball is finally figured it out how to publicize this thing and get all these names out there. So when it happens, we have a good background on it. Richmond. I heard someone was talking the other day that this is the best catcher in the last thirty years to come through the draft better better than Posey and everything else is that good. No, no. Okay. Very good. He is very. But I don't want anyone to think somebody said to me somebody claimed on Twitter you said he wasn't that good. No. I just said he wasn't the best, Johnny bench. There's a little difference between those two statements Posey wasn't a league prospect, twenty came out, and he's been a little bit better even than everyone thought. But even in that draft class, I had posed you the top college player available. I thought he was a star thought he should gone first or second overall. You know, Richmond is rule like that. He if he doesn't go first he's going third. I think the whites royals picking second are locked in on Bobby junior. But rush is no doubt a capture he's a great receiver people. Love his game calling he's got a strong arm. He has power, I think he's gonna get an appropriate and his ability to hit for average and contact is going to be exposed a little bit. It's not saying can't get better, but it's not wearing into Vons is right now. If you know every regiment had Andrew on pure hit toll, then I might talk about them in those kinds of Perla terms. I do think Richmond's great. And the nice thing that he does. Is for you. If you take him, he's got the highest floor. This guy's a big league catcher in some role as long as you didn't get hurt. Right. He could catch in the big leagues probably this year. You're just waiting for his bat to progress quickly through the minors negative. It's your big league lineup but, you know, you got a big Laker, if you draft. Well, all right. Last thought for you. Who in the group? And you know, you've done the mock drafts I love looking at him and ESPN dot com. Who in the group says to you, well, I want that guy who is that. So I mean aside from the obvious ones, like I feel like I'm volunteer advocate here because I keep saying he's better than people think, you know, if he's not one, one necessarily, if Orioles taking a one, he's really good. I will say the two guys who blew me away. When I went to scout myself to spring was minoa kid in West Virginia, we talked about. There's a high school pitcher in Houston. JJ gos-, the same high school that Corbin Martin who's now in the big leagues with the Astros came out. And I saw gos- ninety one and ninety five is an above average slider. He has a change up, okay? He just doesn't have to use it very much because high school pitch high school competition obviously, but I love the way he attacked hitters. He's going after guys in the zone through strikes all day, the miserable conditions for six no hidden innings finally gave up one hit in the seven ended up throwing this shutout just super competitive athletic projectable historically these those guys would go in the top ten to fifteen picks because teams really. Like to roll the dice on projectable, highschool arms. The whole industry has moved away from high school pitching so much that I think there may be good value. And some of those guys and maybe Goss doesn't fall but some of these guys slip into round for teams that have money left over to potentially overpay. He's one I'm particularly going to be watching because right now I don't think he goes in the top twenty picks. But I would take it. They're beautiful. Thank you. Thanks for taking the time. I know what your birthday happy birthday and enjoy with the family and Monday is coming. I know we talked about this last year. How exciting is for you on Monday morning?

I get yourself a sunburn in one year ago. You know? All cooperstown. It is it. Okay. First off. Cooperstown is the hardest place on earth to get to know parking. It's the why it's it's there's like the the there's no flights. There's no airport near Cooperstown. See the fly to like Albany or buffalo and then drive we drove from Columbus.
