What’s Rob Reading?

Henry Aaron (NATIONAL BASEBALL HALL OF FAME LIBRARY)

“Let us appreciate the grace and uncommon decency of Henry Aaron”
By Howard Bryant, ESPN.com

“Over the course of his 86 years, America asked him to do everything right. It asked him to pull himself up by his bootstraps: Henry’s father had built the family house with saved money and leftover planks of wood and nails he scavenged from vacant lots around the Toulminville section of Mobile, while he had taught himself to play baseball. America asked him to put in the hours and the hard work and to not complain: Henry played 23 seasons and never once went on the then-disabled list after his rookie season ended three weeks early because of a broken ankle. No special favors. No handouts. America asked him to believe in meritocracy, the meritocracy of the record books and the scoreboard.”
