The picture of perfection

The pictures cover the full spectrum: from young man chasing his dream to veteran warrior chasing a ghost.

Those eyes — the eyes of Henry Aaron. They never stopped looking for greatness.

4-15-09-Muder_Aaron.jpgThe word “great” doesn’t begin to describe Aaron’s career, nor does it do justice to the Baseball Hall of Fame’s new exhibit Hank Aaron: Chasing the Dream. Located on the Museum’s third floor in what was the Records Room, the exhibit is a worthy tribute to one of the game’s finest players.

From Aaron’s uniforms and bats — including those used to chase Babe Ruth‘s record of 714 home runs — to the brilliant photography, Museum visitors will be treated to a visual journey documenting Aaron’s Hall of Fame career on and off the diamond. It is a fitting tribute to a man who wore the crown of home-run king with grace, dignity and humility.

Hank Aaron: Chasing the Dream opens April 25 at the Baseball Hall of Fame with an 11 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony. Click here for more information.
