Before he was Hammeriní 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 didnít have a bat. He didnít have a ball. And there wasnít a single black ballplayer in the major leagues. But none of this could stop him. In a captivating biography of Henry Aaronís young life, Matt Tavares pays inspiring homage to one of baseballís all-time greats.
