Summary

Hank Aaron: Baseball Player explores the life and career of Major League Baseball’s home-run record holder and civil rights champion.

From his early days as an unknown in the Negro Leagues to his time as a national hero playing for the Atlanta Braves, Hank Aaron redefined the game of baseball. Often remembered for breaking Babe Ruth's career home-run record, Aaron also holds records for most RBIs, most games played, and most home runs with one team. Aaron distinguished himself as one of the first African Americans to break through racial barriers in Major League Baseball when he signed with the Milwaukee Braves in 1952. During his long and remarkable career, Aaron used his celebrity status to draw attention to the inequalities that African-American players experienced.
