Henry Aaron hit career homer No. 710 in a 10-4 victory over the Giants, and Atlanta continued to go gaga over his chase after Babe Ruth's record of 714. Twenty billboards were unveiled around the city saluting his effort, a street will be named after him, a statue of him erected, etc. The Braves are still offering cash payment for Aaron's home-run balls, stamping all the balls pitched to him beforehand with invisible ink to avoid being sold phonies.
