I was there when Hammering Hank made history @mlb @baseballhall @braves:
Here is my story that aired last night on 790 KABC as part of the Lasorda at His Best series presented by Skechers:
Everybody was waiting for Henry Aaron to break the all-time home run record. We are playing I Atlanta, and Aaron hits the ball out of the ballpark off of Al Downing. As he rounded the bases our ball players shook his hand.
As he passed first base, Garvey shook his hand. As he rounded second Davey Lopes shook his hand. As he rounded third and came home Joe Fergeson the catcher shook his hand.
When you see acts like that it makes you feel good to know that even though we were competing against the guy and we wanted to beat him and not have him hit any home runs that we could display good sportsmanship and witness history.
