The BIG SHOW invites all travel and rec baseball teams 7u-14u to compete for the Hank Aaron Big Show Championship to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Hank Aarons historic 715th homerun.
Baseball announcer Vin Scully declared, “What a marvelous moment for baseball; what a marvelous moment for Atlanta and the state of Georgia; what a marvelous moment for the country and the world. A black man is getting a standing ovation in the Deep South for breaking a record of an all-time baseball idol. And it is a great moment for all of us, and particularly for Henry Aaron … And for the first time in a long time, that poker face in Aaron shows the tremendous strain and relief of what it must have been like to live with for the past several months.”
