Take away the home runs, and Hank Aaron still has 3,000 hits, 20 February 2004
Author: (hendrik-huigen) from Milky Way Galaxy

A truly remarkable movie, Hank Aaron: Chasing the Dream is a must watch for any fan of the game of baseball.

Has fantastically great footage of the greatest home run hitter of all time. The way he launches the ball off his bat, the 400 foot line drives, the impeccable swing...truly one of a kind.

From the game he played in his youth, "fireball," to his record-breaking home run on April 8, 1974, Hank Aaron the man reveals all in Hank Aaron: Chasing the Dream.
