“This rousing tribute should resonate with a wide audience." School Library Journal (starred review)

Before he was Hammerin’ Hank, Henry Aaron was a young boy growing up in Mobile, Alabama, with what seemed like a foolhardy dream: to be a big-league baseball player. He didn’t have a bat. He didn’t have a ball. And there wasn’t a single black ballplayer in the major leagues. But none of this could stop him. In a captivating biography of Henry Aaron’s young life, Matt Tavares pays inspiring homage to one of baseball’s all-time greats.

Baker & Taylor
An uplifting tribute to the life and achievements of the record-setting hitter traces his youth in the sandlots of Mobile, Alabama, and his early years in the Negro Leagues through his spring training for the Braves and meteoric rise through the big leagues. Simultaneous.
