Product Overview

Matt Tavares hits one out of the park with this powerful tale of a kid from the segregated South who would become baseball's home-run king.

Before he was Hammerin' Hank, Henry Aaron was a young boy growing up in Mobile, Alabama, with what seemed like a foolhardy dream: to be a big-league baseball player. He didn't have a bat. He didn't have a ball. And there wasn't a single black ball player in the major leagues. But none of this could stop Henry Aaron. In a captivating biography of Henry Aaron's young life from his sandlot days through his time in the Negro Leagues to the day he played his first spring training game for the Braves Matt Tavares offers an inspiring homage to one of baseball's all-time greats.
Back matter includes an authors note, Henry Aarons career statistics, and a bibliography.
