I missed this

There was a lot going on over the last couple of weeks, so apologies to “Hammerin’ Hank”for missing his 77th birthday back on February 5.  I saw a link to his Hall of Fame video on Adam McCalvy’s twitter feed.

MLB.com does not allow embedding of its video so here is a link to home run #715.

Want to know why so many announcers look up to and try to emulate Vin Scully? Here is his call of #715. It’s just a still shot of Aaron with the audio of Scully, but time how long the pause is after the home run is hit to when he speaks again.

A great announcer for a great moment.
