A MAN WHO IS ONE OF US!

OUR POETRY CORNER

Friday!!! time for a post of an American Hero! today with the help of poetry we take a look at:

Henry Louis “Hank” Aaron (1934)

Born in Mobile, Alabama

To Herbert and Estelle Aaron.

Is one of seven siblings

This is where he did begin.

Hank and his brother Tommy

They both went on to play.

Together they hold the record

For most homeruns that stands today.

Growing up his family poor

His balls were bottle caps.

Even then his love for baseball

Was using sticks instead of bats.

He attended Central High School

Where even football did excel.

Was offered several scholarships

Destined for fame one could tell.

Signed with the Indianapolis Clowns

His major league career had begun.

On November twentieth

In nineteen-fifty-one.

The Boston Braves bought his contract

Ten thousand dollars it would be.

Married his sweetheart Barbara Lewis

On October sixth in fifty-three.

Nicknamed the “Hammer”
