Matt Tavares hits one out of the park with this powerful tale of a kid from the segregated South who would become baseball's home-run king.

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.
Back matter includes an author’s note, Henry Aaron’s career statistics, and a bibliography.

Baker & Taylor
An uplifting tribute to the life and achievements of the record-setting hitter traces his youth in the sandlots of Mobile, Alabama, and his early years in the Negro Leagues through his spring training for the Braves and meteoric rise through the big leagues. Simultaneous.
