I loved listening to Milo Hamilton broadcast the Atlanta Braves games. I never enjoyed hearing him so much as this amazing day. I can still hear him announce Hank Aaron’s 715th home run, breaking Babe Ruth’s record.

“Henry Aaron in the second inning walked and scored. He’s sittin’ on 714. Here’s the pitch by Downing. Swinging. There’s a drive into left-center field! That ball is gonna be … outta here! It’s gone! It’s 715! There’s a new home run champion of all time, and it’s Henry Aaron!”  – Milo Hamilton, April 8, 1974
