Synopsis

On April 8, 1974, America watched as Hank Aaron stepped up to the plate. The pitch was low and down the middle. Hank swung--and hit career home run number 715! With that hit, he surpassed Babe Ruth's legendary record and realized a lifelong dream.
Before blacks were allowed to play in the major leagues, Hank was determined that that was where he was going to play. When his success in the field triggered a deluge of hate mail, he refused to back down. This is the moving story of Hank Aaron's strength and perseverance--of how he became a great ballplayer and an inspiration to us all.
