Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth's Homeroom record on April 8. 1974.
With live sports events shut down by the coronavirus pandemic, a lot of old games are being re-aired on television and the Internet. And here’s one particularly worth watching: the Braves-Dodgers game of April 8, 1974.
That was the historic game, of course, in which Hank Aaron hit his 715th home run to break Babe Ruth’s career record.
Starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday on their Facebook and YouTube platforms, the Braves will mark the 46th anniversary of that momentous feat by showing the game again in its entirety.
