In 1982, one of baseball’s greatest sluggers, Hank Aaron, was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. I really love the dignity of person and reverence to baseball and his predecessors in this speech. And, of course, there is the nod to figures like Jackie Robinson and Roy Campanella, who paved the way for blacks in the world of Major League Baseball.
One thought on “Hank Aaron’s Hall of Fame induction speech”
Henry, can you hear me thinking about you? There’s a little angel on my shoulder softly whispering the words to an old John Prine song “I Remember Everything”. Finally, I do. And finally, the butterflies are free.
