Two of baseball's most revered figures held hallowed records for decades AND shared first & middle names: Henry Louis (Hank) Aaron & Henry Louis (Lou) Gehrig. In our 1997 special on Jackie Robinson's legacy, Aaron said of chasing & passing the 714 home runs of Gehrig's teammate Babe Ruth & enduring a torrent of racist abuse & death threats, "I don't talk about it that much, especially the home run. It had taken a piece of my life with it. Rather than being happy, it was a sad moment."

Henry Aaron said in ‘09 re: slumps. "The only thing you can do is just go up there & swing the bat. I hear people say you've got to try & hit the ball to the middle, do this & do that — you just can't guide baseballs like that. Somebody's throwing a baseball at 90 miles per hour & I'm going to try and hit it to right field? Your brains and your hands don't give you time to think like that. All you're trying to do is get the bat on the ball." (he laughed)

In our 2009 interview, Henry Aaron said, "I gave baseball everything that I had, everything for 23 years. I played the game the only way I knew how to play it, (I'd) go out and play it the way all the fans knew I could play it and I think that was it." He said of PEDs & Barry Bonds, "You have to say right now he is the home run champ." And, "I have no resentment to any other player. I just feel like I did everything that's humanly possible that Henry Aaron could do, and that was it."

Don Sutton said in our 2006 interview, "I consider myself a guy that would've done the right thing, because it was the right thing to do. ‘What do you want me to do, when do you want it done and trust me, I'll give you my best effort.'" As an analyst, he took special interest in Tom Glavine. "His personality and mine are identical and our approach to life and our approach to pitching and preparation: ‘it's my job, let's go do it, I'll give it the best I've got and then I'll take the results.'"
