      Alabama History/Culture in the News: USE THIS ONE & Bonus Material

      NOTE:


      Materials in brackets are my additions. Items are listed more or less in reverse chronological order within each section. All links are working at the time I send this email. Many of the articles listed are printed in other Alabama newspapers; in general, I do not attempt to list all appearances of an article. Some dates given are those when the item was posted to the newspaper or magazine web site. Some items are listed without links because I could not find online versions.


      Feel free to forward this email as desired....


      AND NOW THE NEWS...



      Additional articles can often be found at Google, Topix or Yahoo news sites:

      **1934 Feb. 5-Henry (Hank) Aaron is born in Mobile , Alabama .  After starting

                his major league baseball career with the Milwaukee Braves in

                1954, he will distinguish himself as a home-run specialist. 

                Aaron will be considered by some, the best baseball player in

                history. Over his 23-year Major League Baseball career, he will

                compile more batting records than any other player in baseball

                history. He will hold the record for runs batted in with 2297,

                and will be a Gold Glove Winner in 1958, 1959, and 1960. His

                most famous accomplishment will come on April 8, 1974, when at

                the age of 40, he will hit a 385-foot home run against the Los

                Angeles Dodgers, surpassing Babe Ruth's record of 714 career

                home runs. He will end his career with 755 home runs. In 1982,

                he will be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. After his

                retirement, he will return to the Atlanta Braves as a vice-

                president for player development, and will be promoted to
                senior vice-president in 1989.
