Hank Aaron by Jamie Poolos

This is a fascinating biography of one of baseball's greatest players.Hank Aaron broke into the major leagues in 1954 with the Milwaukee Braves and spent the next 21 seasons making baseball history with the organization. He is perhaps best known for setting the MLB record for most career home runs with 755-a record that was only recently broken by Barry Bonds. Aaron owns the major league record for total bases (6,856), extrabase hits (1,477), and RBI (2,297). Aaron, who appeared in a record-tying 24 All-Star games, won three Gold Gloves for his play in right field and was the 1957 National League MVP. And in 1982, he was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Career statistics, along with lively photographs, insightful sidebars, and engrossing text, make Hank Aaron a hard-hitting biography of one of baseball's most memorable players.
