MLB – 1980 – Audrey Kates Interviews Hank Aaron On The Impact Of Jackie Robinson In His Career

There were five legendary outfielders in Major League Baseball during the Golden Age of Baseball from 1951 to 1976…..to include Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, Roberto Clemente, Duke Snyder and Hank Aaron…..who between them set a standard of excellence that has not been seen either prior to or since they graced the outfields of MLB…..as each one was equally adept at bat and in the field of play. 

In this video, hostess Audrey Kates of the 1980 baseball made for tv special The Boys in the Field, conducts an insightful interview with Hammerin’ Hank Aaron….regarding the impact that Dodgers Jackie Robinson had on him and his career after breaking the color barrier in MLB in 1947. 

With a career total of 3,771 Hits….755 HRs….and 2297 RBIs…..it is difficult to say that any player was ever better.
