This week we examine the life and career of one of the greatest ballplayers who ever lived, the Hammer Hank Aaron. The slew of awards won and records set, are but an underscore to his legacy. Here is a black man, who successfully challenged the record of a white player, who's baseball legacy borders on mythological. In the deep south, in the early 70's. And he did it under the threat of physical violence, with a poise so unshakeable, it still remains to this day, a study in professionalism. Dignity, pride, courage... these are words we use to describe heroes. Those are also the same words you can use to describe Henry as well. Perhaps, that isn't a coincidence.

This Day in Baseball - The Daily Rewind

Frank Robinson was the first black manager when the Cleveland Indians hired him, but there was another black player who managed before Robbie . . . .     On November 4, 1948  Jake Powell, 39, former big league baseball star, shot himself to death in Washington police headquarters late today while being questioned on bad check charges. Powell had been picked up at the Union Station the complaint of a local hotel where he had been staying the past three days. After Powell was taken to the check and fraud division of local police headquarters and during the questioning police said he asked permission to leave the room for several minutes. Police said he stepped outside the door pulled out a 25-caliber revolver and shot himself once in the chest and once in the right temple.  With him when he was taken into custody was a woman who identified herself as Josephine Amder, of Deland, Fla. she told police she and Powell had planned to be married during the day, but later changed their plans. But Mrs. Elizabeth Powell, to whom the ballplayer had been married several years, said she was still his wife and as far as she was concerned there had been no separation. On November 4, 1889 — After a formal meeting of representatives from all National League chapters, the Brotherhood issues a “Manifesto” in which it claims that “players have been bought, sold and exchanged as though they were sheep instead of American citizens.” This bold statement constitutes a declaration of war between the Brotherhood and major league officials which will soon explode into the formation of the Players League.   86 years later . . . .   On November 4, 1976 — The first mass-market free agent re-entry draft is held at the New York Plaza Hotel. Among those available are Reggie Jackson, Willie McCovey, Joe Rudi, Don Gullett, Gene Tenace, Nate Colbert, Rollie Fingers, Don Baylor, and Bobby Grich. McCovey and Colbert are the only two players not selected, but McCovey will catch on with the Giants in spring training and have a banner year at his old first base position. Jackson will go onto star for the New York Yankees and win two World Championships. Fingers will have several excellent seasons for the Padres and Brewers including winning an MVP and Cy Young award. Baylor will go to win an MVP award.     On November 4, 1959 — – Ernie Banks wins his second National League MVP Award in a row on the strength of his 45 home runs and 143 RBI for the Chicago Cubs. Eddie Mathews finishes second.   What really made 1959 special for Ernie was his defense, his 3.5 Dwar is the highest of his career, he will be rewarded with a gold glove in 1960, but he was much better in 1959.       Fun fact from 1955 to 1960 his 248 home runs were more than anyone else in the majors, including Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays and Hank Aaron. His 5 Grand slams in a single season is still tied for the single season record in the NL. And was the MLB record until 1987.   On November 4, 2001, the Arizona Diamondbacks win their first World Series championship. Down a run to the Yankees in the ninth, the D-Backs rally against New York closer Mariano Rivera, winning on a single by Luis Gonzalez, 3-2. Tony Wolmack had tied the game 2 batters earlier, doubling down the right-field line. It was the first time since 1985, two twenty-game winners start Game 7 of the World Series when Yankee right-hander Roger Clemens (20-3) faces Curt Schilling (22-6) of the Diamondbacks at Bank One Ballpark in Arizona. Sixteen years ago, Bret Saberhagen (20-6) of the Royals squared off against Cardinal hurler John Tudor (21-8) in the Fall Classic finale at Kauffman Stadium.   The four-year-old Diamondbacks, the youngest franchise to win a Fall Classic, end New York's string of three consecutive World Championships. Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling share the Series MVP honors. The Arizona pitchers are the first multiple winners since the Los Angeles Dodgers trio of Ron Cey, Pedro Guerrero and Steve Yeager shared the award in the 1981 World Series. Following the 2010 season, a panel of experts at the MLB Network will vote this game the 9th greatest game of the past fifty years. It was the first time since 1985, two twenty-game winners start Game 7 of the World Series when Yankee right-hander Roger Clemens (20-3) faces Curt Schilling (22-6) of the Diamondbacks at Bank One Ballpark in Arizona. Sixteen years ago, Bret Saberhagen (20-6) of the Royals squared off against Cardinal hurler John Tudor (21-8) in the Fall Classic finale at Kauffman Stadium.     Birthday boy Dick Groat Born: November 4, 1930, Wilkinsburg, PA The acknowledged leader of the Pirates, Groat was a good-hitting shortstop with great range. He helped Pittsburgh to the World Series title in 1960, and after being dealt to St. Louis, played for their World Championship team in 1964. At Duke Univeristy, Groat was an All-American baskertball player who spurned offers to make professional basketball his career. In 1960 he was named National League Most Valuable Player, when he won the batting title.   Best Season, 1960 groat staved off challengers to win the batting title with a .325 mark. He excelled at Forbes Field: batting .363 at home and .290 in road games. A singles hitters, Groat had just 32 extra-base hits, one of the lowest marks by an MVP winner, but he was sure-handed in the field, as usual. As he did much of his career, Groat hit well against southpaws: .376 in 178 at-bats. After he slumped in July, Groat responded by hitting .373 in August and .344 in September/October. On September 6, a Lew Burdette pitch broke Groat's wrist, sidelining the shortstop for nearly four weeks. He returned the last weekend of the year and played in the World Series. After his playing career, Banks became the first African-American to manage in the Major Leagues on May 8, 1973, when, as a coach, he took over for ejected manager Whitey Lockman during extra innings of a 3-2 win over the Padres in San Diego

Call Him Jack: The Story of Jackie Robinson, Black Freedom Fighter by Yohuru Williams, Michael G. Long An enthralling, eye-opening portrayal of this barrier-breaking American hero as a lifelong, relentlessly proud fighter for Black justice and civil rights. According to Martin Luther King, Jr., Jackie Robinson was “a sit-inner before the sit-ins, a freedom rider before the Freedom Rides.” According to Hank Aaron, Robinson was a leader of the Black Power movement before there was a Black Power movement. According to his wife, Rachel Robinson, he was always Jack, not Jackie―the diminutive form of his name bestowed on him in college by white sports writers. And throughout his whole life, Jack Robinson was a fighter for justice, an advocate for equality, and an inspiration beyond just baseball. From prominent Robinson scholars Yohuru Williams and Michael G. Long comes Call Him Jack, an exciting biography that recovers the real person behind the legend, reanimating this famed figure's legacy for new generations, widening our focus from the sportsman to the man as a whole, and deepening our appreciation for his achievements on the playing field in the process.

America has such an instant-gratification culture, it looked the other way in Major League Baseball with the steroid abuse that made legends of America's pastime. If we didn't have an instant-gratification culture, then what happened this week could have been the biggest moment in sports and baseball. In a game against the Texas Rangers, NY Yankees Outfielder Aaron Judge hit home run number 62 in a single season, surpassing the number done by former record-holder Roger Maris. This could have been the biggest story since Hank Aaron surpassed Babe Ruth, but it wasn't because everything in America has to have some sort of negative racial connotation in order to receive worldwide mainstream coverage. “Fearless” contributors Steve Kim & T.J. Moe join the conversation to discuss why this isn't covered all over mainstream media and Steve starts some friendly-fire with a truth about Major League Baseball.

In 400-plus episodes of The Dale Jr. Download, guests have brought a lot of Earnhardt stories to the table. But on this week's edition the mold has been broken as Dale Earnhardt Jr. and co-host Mike Davis welcome longtime MLB player, coach and team manager Ned Yost. After being drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in 1974 and playing in the majors for a handful of years, Ned retired during the ‘85 season. When he was at home in Mississippi figuring out his next move in life, he received a call from the Hank Aaron that would change the trajectory of his life forever, inviting him to be a coach for the upcoming pitching prospects of the Atlanta Braves. It was during his time with the Braves organization that he first made the acquaintance of Dale Earnhardt Sr. Ned and friend Jody Davis had made plans to go deer hunting and Davis invited Dale Sr. to come along. Ned and Dale Sr. became fast friends, bonding over their love of hunting and the outdoors and Ned would become a confidant for the Intimidator for years to come. Dale Jr. and Mike pick Ned's brain about the transition from being a player to a coach, and he explains about how his time with Ted Simmons on the Brewers helped teach him the nuts and bolts of the game. When it came time for Ned to try his hand at team management, he leaned on his experiences of working with Bobby Cox, longtime manager of the Braves. And when he needed to turn a losing organization into a winning one, he depended on the lessons he learned from a brief stint of working on Dale Sr.'s race team in ‘94. Ned recalls the instance that occurred during the ‘94 MLB strike, where Dale Sr. invited him to come on the road with his Richard Childress Racing No. 3 team as they chased their seventh championship. While Ned merely worked as a “rehydration engineer”, he gained first person insight into what it takes to win at the highest level. The education came in handy as he went on to win his first World Series title with the Braves the following year as a bullpen coach. Another lesson that Dale Sr. instilled in Ned was that you never leave a winning team for a losing one. Ned explains that during a hunting trip in Texas, Dale Sr. was talking about his ongoing contract negotiations for the following season. When Ned suggested that he drive for his own start-up D.E.I., Dale Sr. explained that they weren't ready to win yet. Ned pondered eventually having to leave the Braves to get his shot at managing a major league team and Dale Sr. implored him to stay put, explaining that winning is everything. The time came for Ned to leave in 2002 when he was made team manager of the Brewers. Ned breaks down the time it takes for a young organization to grow confident in their ability and start winning consistently, about a two-and-a-half-year process. Unfortunately, he was let go by Milwaukee before this concept came to fruition, but he found another opportunity to prove the system when he became manager of the Kansas City Royals in 2010. Ned would have the last laugh, as the Royals would win the ALC Pennant in 2014 and the World Series championship in 2015. The first thing Ned thought of was his old friend and how proud he would be of the persistent road to success. This episode has many never before heard Earnhardt hunting stories, as well “the rest of the story” of some of the most memorable tales told on The Download. Listeners should tune in for unforgettable insight into what it takes to win not only a World Series but a NASCAR Cup Championship, as well a better understanding of who Dale Earnhardt Sr. was away from the race track.

The Phillies are hanging on for dear life with their Wild Card lead down to 0.5 games with 8 games remaining. Fresh of four straight losses and back-to-back losses against the Cubs, the Phillies desperately need a win. Meanwhile, the fierce battle of the NL East continues between the Mets and Braves, both fighting for the division lead and the critical #2 playoff seed which gets a first round bye and avoids the Dodgers until the NLCS. On Friday, the Mets head to Atlanta for what will perhaps be the most important series of the year for both teams. Albert Pujols made history with his 700th homerun and joins the most prestigious list in baseball with only 3 other members – Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, and Babe Ruth. Last but not least, Aaron Judge just tied Roger Maris with 61 home runs. It took Judge 7 games to hit this historic homerun, but with 7 games remaining for the Yankees, pressure is surely building for this year's MVP lock. Should we also mention that Judge is also battling for the AL Triple Crown, with the deciding factor being batting average as Judge is currently barely ahead as he battles Luis Arraez (both players hitting .313). Only 12 Triple Crowns have ever been achieved, the last in 2012 by Miguel Cabrera, the next closest goes all the way back to 1967. Best of luck to Aaron Judge as he fights for these two historic achievements. http://speakingofsportspod.com/https://twitter.com/Speak_of_Sportshttps://www.facebook.com/SpeakingofSportsPod

Sports' Forgotten Heroes

The greatest players to have ever appeared in a Major League Baseball game are honored and immortalized in Cooperstown, New York at the Baseball Hall of Fame. Players like Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. Ty Cobb and Christy Mathewson. Ted William and Joe DiMaggio. Mickey Mantle and Stan Musial. Of course there's Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Tom Seaver and more recently Ken Griffey, Jr. and Mariano Rivera. But there are dozens upon dozens more who have been enshrined and whose stories we know so little about. Names very few of us recognize. Guys like Dan Brouthers, Deacon White, Bid McPhee and George Davis. Guys who had great careers, but guys whom we know so little about - not matter how deserving of a plaque they are. Another of those names is Dave Bancroft. He made his debut with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1915 and led them to a World Series appearance. A career .279 hitter, Bancroft enjoyed his best years with the New York Giants for whom he hit .310 and played shortstop on a team that went to three straight World Series and twice came out on top, beating the New York Yankees in 1921 and 1922. Bancroft was a "beauty" at shortstop. In fact, his game might most be compared to that of a more recent defensive "wiz" - Ozzie Smith. On this episode of Sports' Forgotten Heroes, author Tom Alesia joins for a wonderful conversation about one of baseball's most obscure Hall of Famers - Dave Bancroft. Tom's new book, "Beauty At Short" is a terrific retrospective on a career so many know so little about. Tom and I talk about Dave's early struggles at the plate, his defensive genius in the field, his desire to manage, his days as a playing-manager with the Boston Braves, his days as a Manager in the All America Girls Baseball Association and Dave's life off the field.

Today's word of the day is ‘700' as in 700 career home runs as in Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, and Babe Ruth. That's it. In the history of the game. Now Albert Pujols is knocking on the door. Last night he hit number 693. It didn't look like he had a chance and in these past 10 games he's been scorching it. What will 700 look like? How much could it sell for? What is security going to be like? Will Albert have a chance to be the final one in the club? (14:20) Yadier Molina is a hall of fame player. Yadier Molina is a Cardinals legend.

Stories of Vin Scully,  calling The Catch, Hank Aaron & Kirk Gibson, Vin Scully greatest calls and a replay of the last time Vin Scully was at the station!

Unleashed with Mitch Williams

Three major news pieces occurred this week – Vin Scully, Deshaun Watson, and the MLB Trade Deadline. Rest in Peace Vin Scully, Hall of Fame broadcaster announcer who put smiles on the faces of millions of fans. In his almost 70 year career, Scully called 3 perfect games, 20 no-hitters, and multiple historic events like Hank Aaron's 715th home run. Vin was the best and will never be forgotten.Deshaun Watson, facing approximately 30 accusations of sexual allegations, received a 6-game suspension for the upcoming NFL season. This deeply troubling decision makes us question what the NFL is really focused on, especially when compared to other NFL suspensions.The MLB trade deadline just passed, and the Phillies made a handful of moves. Will outfielder Brandon Marsh, who statistically struggles in center field, propel the offense? Will Noah Syndergaard (aka "Thor") elevate to greatness once again, and will David Robertson show Philadelphia what he's capable of this time around? Time will tell as the Phillies keep fighting for the playoffs. The Padres made huge moves by acquiring superstar Juan Soto and other key players. Will the combination of Tatis Jr, Machado, and Soto prove to be one of the deadliest offenses in baseball?http://speakingofsportspod.com/https://twitter.com/Speak_of_Sportshttps://www.facebook.com/SpeakingofSportsPod

The Atlanta Braves got back on track over the weekend by sweeping the Arizona Diamondbacks. Austin Riley was a big part of that by ending the series finale in walk-off fashion with a double and breaking a record previously held by Hank Aaron. Jarvis Davis and Tenitra Batiste talked about the significance of that for Riley and whether or not Alex Anthopoulos should make any more moves. Also, they discussed Deshaun Watson getting a six-game suspension. Secondly, the Atlanta Falcons made a lot of noise over the weekend as they continued training camp practices. Dean Pees showed how disturbed he was that the Falcons' defense has been traditionally bad. Jarvis Davis and Tenitra Batiste talked about whether or not Pees has the tools to change the culture on defense. Lastly, the Atlanta Hawks are itching for the 2022-23 season to start because they want to be contenders in the Eastern Conference. So, when Travis Schlenk traded for Dejounte Murray, there was a feeling that they could be headed in the right direction.
