Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Matt Tavares hits one out of the park with this powerful tale of a kid from the segregated south who would become baseballs home-run king.

Before he was Hammerin Hank, Henry Aaron was a young boy grow ing up in Mobile, Alabama, with what seemed like a foolhardy dream: to be a big-league baseball player. He didnt have a bat. He didnt have a ball. And there wasnt a single black ball player in the major leagues. B ut none of this could stop Henry Aaron. In a captivating biography of Henr y Aarons young life - from his sandlot days through his time in the Negro Leagues to the day he played his first spring training game for the Braves - Matt Tavares offers an inspiring homage to one of baseballs all-time greats.
