A short bio from the Helmar “This Great Game” card back: When the Braves signed young Henry out of the negro leagues, they toyed with the notion of making him a switch-hitter. One day while batting lefty, Aaron let the bat slip from his hands and nearly clocked Joe Adcock in the skull. That ended the experiment. Aaron needn’t hit from the other side, he’s a dangerous man from the right side of the plate. According to one NL hurler, throwing a fastball past Aaron is like “trying to sneak the sunrise past a rooster.”
