Background: Hank Aaron, star o???lder for the Atlanta Braves of the National (baseball) League, ???is 713th home run on Saturday, just a tantalizing one short of the ???l time record of 714 homers set by the famed Babe Ruth, and the disappointingly, failed in four timers at bat yesterday in his last game of the season the swat another honer and tie Ruth's ??? record as "the ??an of swat." Atlanta lost to the Houston Astrog, 5 to 2.
Aaron faced the Astro???tar pitcher Dave Roberts three times and confessed later he tried for home runs all life way. But he got three base hits anyway. Then, ??? his fourth time at bat against pitcher Don Wilson, Aaron, 39 years old but with the powerful wrists of a 19??? year youth, hit a pop fly and was out. ??? But Aaron was philosophical: he said resignedly he would try again next year to match Ruth's record, and the betting is he will with Home Run Number 14 soon in the spring.
