  • A special day in many ways
    It’s April 8, which this year, is Easter. April 8, without being Easter, is still a special date for me. In baseball lore, you might recall that’s the date Hank Aaron hit his historic home run in Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium to pass Babe Ruth. A few seasons before the old Braves’ stadium closed, our church, First Presbyterian, took a bus trip to see the Braves play the Phillies.
