Hammerin’ Hank hits a homer!

“It’s gone! It’s 715! There’s a new home run champion!” – Milo Hamilton, WSB-TV, April 8, 1974

The Atlanta Heart Walk was held not in Turner Field itself, but was spread throughout the parking lot. When Fulton County Stadium was torn down in 1997, the area was leveled out and paved – the old stadium is now the new stadium’s parking area. One small section was left standing: the outfield wall that Henry Aaron’s 715th home run cleared when he broke Major League Baseball’s lifetime home run record.
