By Stuart Shea
It was 40 years ago today
The Bums came to ‘Lanta to play
Al Downing tried to pitch with style,
But Hank hit the ball a country mile.
So let me introduce to you—the righty with the mighty swing…
Henry Aaron’s record-breaking bomb !
The brand new edition of Stu’s book, Wrigley Field: The Long Life and Contentious Times of the Friendly Confines, is on sale now.
