Description - Henry Aaron's Dream by Matt Tavares

Matt Tavares hits one out of the park with this powerful tale of a kid from the segregated south who would become baseball s home-run king. Before he was Hammerin Hank, Henry Aaron was a young boy grow ing up in Mobile, Alabama, with what seemed like a foolhardy dream: to be a big-league baseball player. He didn t have a bat. He didn t have a ball. And there wasn t a single black ball player in the major leagues. B ut none of this could stop Henry Aaron. In a captivating biography of Henr y Aaron s young life from his sandlot days through his time in the Negro Leagues to the day he played his first spring training game for the Braves Matt Tavares offers an inspiring homage to one of baseball s all-time greats."
