"In playing ball, and in life, a person occasionally gets the opportunity to do something great. When that time comes, only two things matter: being prepared to seize the moment and having the courage to take your best swing."


- Henry 'Hank' Aaron

For many Hank Aaron is just known as 'Hammerin Hank', the homerun king, but many don't know Henry Aaron the man.
