What are facts about Hank Aaron?

He was the first black to break Babe Ruth`s Home Run record!


Why was Hank Aaron getting 755 home runs important?

Two reasons: 1) Many people -- myself included -- thought that Babe Ruth's record for home runs in a career would be impossible to break. When the Babe retired, nobody had even HALF that many home runs in a career. To come within even 200 home runs of Ruth's record was considered a super achievement. Yet Hank DID break the record. 2) More significantly, Hank did it despite the extraordinary pressure against him. About 20% of this "fan" mail as he approached the record was overtly racist hate mail, with many letters openly stating that they would kill him before he could break the record.


How did Racism Affect Hank Aaron?

I saw a SportsCentury piece on ESPN where Aaron said he received death threats and racist mail when he was about to break Babe Ruth's career home run record. He obviously dealt with the bigotry very well to have become as great a baseball player as he did.
