Description

Before he was Hammerin' Hank, Henry Aaron was a young boy growing up in Mobile, Alabama, with what seemed like a foolhardy dream: to be a big-league baseball player. He didn't have a bat. He didn't have a ball. And there wasn't a single black ball player in the major leagues. But none of this could stop Henry Aaron. In a captivating biography of Henry Aaron's young life, from his sandlot days through his time in the Negro Leagues to the day he played his first spring training game for the Braves, Matt Tavares offers an inspiring homage to one of baseball's all-time greats.



"Well-written text and brilliantly composed art highlight the poignancy and triumph in Aaron's story. This rousing tribute should resonate with a wide audience." — School Library Journal, Starred review
