Henry Aaron’s Record Home Run 45 Years Ago

April 8, 2019

Forty five years ago tonight, on another Monday April 8th, the magnificent Henry Aaron slammed his 715th home run, breaking the long held record of the immortal, Babe Ruth.

The game was telecast by NBC with Curt Gowdy calling the historic home run.

Hank Aaron turned 85 earlier this year, thus was forty, when he hit the historic home run.

I have added a link to what I posted six years ago, concerning the night and some of the men and back story.

 

Henry Aaron’s record breaking home run occurred in Atlanta with Aaron playing for the Atlanta Braves.

Click below for some interesting notes and people involved that record breaking night, now forty five years ago.
