Aaron's 715th

April 8, 1974

Fans in the Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium bleachers never got to touch the ball that broke Babe Ruth's career home run record. Instead, Hank Aaron's blast landed in the Braves' bullpen, where reliever Tom House picked it up and gave it to his teammate. The ball is now on display in the Braves Hall of Fame at Turner Field.
