I wanted to make sure to send out Happy Birthday wishes to one of my favorites from the past.
It was on this day in 1934 that the greatest home run hitter was born. Hank was a great player, but was also a very gracious person who never focused on himself. He was one of the best people to break the Babe's record given the racial tensions in this country still in 1974.
While he won't be with us forever, we should all thank him for his accomplishments and the way he changed the face of baseball. Happy Birthday Hank!!
