On April 8th, 1967, Hammerin' Hank crushed his 715th homerun, surpassing Babe Ruth on the all-time list. On a 1-0 fastball, Henry made history when he served the pitch into the seats in left. Aaron went on to hit 755 homeruns in his illustrious major league career.

Hi Josh,

I was glad to find your website as well. I love the energy in this painting, but especially I love the light on the face. Beautiful!

Incredible! Josh, you're great! If a frosh like me had $100, I'd buy this painting.

Great painting! Aaron actually hit number 715 in 1974. Also, the ball landed in the bullpen in left-center field and was caught/recovered by Braves team mate pitcher Tom House.
Awesome paintings, John.
