The TRUE Home Run King


-David S.-

On April 8, 1974, Hank Aaron, of the Atlanta Braves,  reached the impossible record of breaking “the Babe’s” all-time home run record.  Hank is a great man and a class act.

These videos capture the excitement of number 714 and famous number 715!

 

FAMOUS 715!

 

 

 

People say Barry Bonds is the Home Run King, but Hank stands alone.  Remember this: 715 home runs, no PED’s needed….

Hank you’re the true KING!

What would your jersey number be and why??
