HANK AARON, a player for the Milwaukee Braves, stands in the on-deck circle, awaiting his turn at bat against PITCHER, Vic Raschi, a player for the St. Louis Cardinals. Another player, JOHNNY LOGAN, in the dugout yells at Aaron.
LOGAN – “Pound it outta here Hank!”
AARON – “I’ll try my best. All I can do.”
Aaron steps to the plate.
Aaron slams the balls over the fence and rounds the bases to home plate, greeted by his teammates as they all celebrate their way back into the dugout.
INT. ANNOUNCER BOOTH – Continued…
HARRY CARRY and JACK BUCK, announcers for the Cardinals, are even gripped by the moment.
CARRY – “This kid’s got it, Jack.”
BUCK – “He sure does.”
CARRY – “Hammerin’ Hank has arrived, everyone!”
Aaron quickly established himself as an important player for the Braves and won the National League batting title in 1956, and the league’s MVP award in 1957, and helped beat the Yankees in the World Series.
In May 1970, he became the first player in baseball to record 500 homers and 3K hits and went on to break Babe Ruth’s record of 714 career home runs.
