Hank Aaron

Baseball great Hank Aaron, in celebration of his 80th birthday, discussed his life and accomplishments with ESPN personality and Aaron biographer, Howard Bryant, at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C. on February 8, 2014. Aaron spoke as part of the Living Portrait Series in the Smithsonian American Art Museum and National Portrait Gallery's Nan Tucker McEvoy Auditorium. An oil painting of Aaron by artist Ross Rossin of Atlanta was also unveiled in the National Portrait Gallery. Henry Louis "Hank" Aaron was born on February 5, 1934 in Mobile Alabama. In 1974, as a player for the Atlanta Braves, Hank Aaron hit his 715th home run to break Babe Ruth’s previous record, which had stood for 39 years. (Photo by Jeff Malet)
