See the young man in this picture? He was 18 years old when he was taken at the train station in Mobile, Alabama in 1952. There is $1.50 in his pocket. In that bag by his foot are two changed of clothes. He was on his way to Indiana to take a job. He was going to play baseball for the Indy clowns of the Negros Leagues. Apparently, he was pretty good at it. He played for the Milwaukee Braves for 2 seasons, and for the Milwaukee Braves, before later following them to Atlanta. Eventually, he was the last Negro League player to be on a major league roster. Even though the team has changed stadium twice since then, his retired number, 44, still hangs on the outfield wall of the old Atlanta Fulton County stadium near where he belted a homer to break Babe Ruth’s all time record, which he held for 33 years. Rest in peace Hammerin Hank Aaron Born February 5, 1934.
