Overview

Editor-photographer Randy Cox literally had a front-row seat to history when he covered the Braves' 1974 home opener and his hero Henry Aaron belted career home run #715. Pull up alongside Randy in the photographers' box, race onto the field with him, crowd into the media room. Hear the story as it's never been told before--minute by minute and image by image--from someone who was there!

715 at 50: The Night Henry Aaron Changed Baseball and the World Forever features 44 photos taken by Cox that night--the star-studded pregame ceremony, in-game action shots (including 715!), the euphoric on-field aftermath, and the postgame press conference. 715 at 50 takes you back to that night and does so much more!

** Exclusive interviews with Aaron's teammates Ron Reed and Buzz Capra, who won and saved the game, respectively

** Details on Aaron's feud with Commissioner Bowie Kuhn and the controversy triggered by home run 714

** Sidebars about Dusty Baker and Eddie Mathews, brother Tommie, the Braves' escape from Milwaukee, Atlanta Fulton-County Stadium, and loads of other great baseball history

** An interview with former Braves' PR guru, Bob Hope, who orchestrated the night and remained close friends with Aaron for 50 years

** Chapters covering Aaron's incredible career, tributes from the baseball world, and the culture-changing impact Aaron had beyond the game

Get a ticket to your own front-row seat to one of the most historic games in baseball history and celebrate the legend of one of its greatest and most beloved heroes.
