“In playing ball, and in life, a person occasionally gets the opportunity to do something great. When that time comes, only two things matter: being prepared to seize the moment and having the courage to take your best swing.” Hank Aaron
Yesterday the sports world lost a legend as Hank Aaron the man who broke Babe Ruth's home run record passed away. He wasn't necessarily the flashiest star or the most quotable. He faced discrimination on a daily basis as he neared the record people said would never be broken. People sent daily death threats, threatened to kidnap his children and the hate mail he received was voluminous. I remember watching him hit his 715th home run in Atlanta early in 1974 against the Dodgers Al Downing. It left a tremendous impression on me then and to this day. Hank Aaron was an unassuming super star who went to the park each day and did his job without a ton of fanfare until he got close to the record. He consistently hit 35-40 home runs a year for 20 years. He had the courage to overcome racial prejudice that would have debilitated most. He was indeed a legend and a leader and had the courage to persevere and become great. When presented with the opportunity he took a swing and didn't miss.
