One Last Shot Over The Left Field Wall

One Last Shot Over The Left Field Wall

Hank Aaron got another standing ovation yesterday.  As usual, he didn’t make a big deal about it.  He actually stood in line with everybody else, but as he neared the front, somebody recognized him and word that he’d arrived spread quickly. Hank laughed when...
