1954 HEADLINE: Henry Aaron Makes His Major League Debut
On this day in 1954 you made your debut as a professional baseball player. Happy Anniversary!
At the time who would have thought that you would be the player to surpass the great Babe Ruth’s all-time home run mark? Who would have thought that you would have been 1 of just a few players in the history of the game to eclipse the 500 home run and 3,000 hit plateaus? Who would have thought you would have been a 21-time All-star? A 3-time Gold Glove winner? A Most Valuable Player? A World Series winner?
Thank you for dreaming Mr. Aaron. Thank you for reaching for the stars!!!
