I am lucky enough to be old enough to have seen him hit #715 on TV.  One of those moments in sports that you never forget.

I agree, Scot, he will always be the home run king in my mind.  He was a class act.  He exemplified the rare quality of humility.

RIP. 

I remember that. It was a Monday Night Football game, and every time Aaron came to bat, they switched  to that game.

Pitcher was Al Downing. 

He gave up 714 in Cincinnati to Jack Billingham. 

I was a kid, an avid Reds fan, but I loved Aaron and followed his quest to brake Babe's record from when he had about 650--he was on the cover of Boy's Life mag. and my uncle had a copy.

I remember that game as well.  I don't remember how old I was but I know I loved watching him play.  RIP to a legend.
