The picture of perfection
By Craig Muder
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.
The 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.
