Joe Garagiola, Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Pearl Bailey, Curt Gowdy, Ross Porter, Tony Kubek, Monte Irvin, Roger Mudd, Eric Sevareid

A special Monday Night Baseball presentation with pre-game ceremonies salutes Henry Aaron who speaks to a full house from Atlanta, Georgia before the game. Curt Gowdy, Joe Garagiola and Tony Kubek are in the Broadcasting Booth. The National Anthem is sung by Miss Pearl Bailey for this Brave and Dodgers contest. Hank Aaron's first plate appearance in the second inning is a walk. But coming to bat for the second time, Aaron hits career home run number 715 and Hank Aaron thanks his fans and receives special gifts including a ring and a watch, presented by Monte Irvin on behalf of Commissioner Bowie Kuhn, who is not in attendance. Gowdy, Garagiola, and Kubek discuss the significance of the 715 home runs before the game resumes. Also on this tape is a CBS news broadcast from Los Angeles. Ross Porter recounts the events of the day and in addition, a CBS next day news program with aftermath reactions is presented. Aaron is interviewed at his home the morning after. There is a poignant editorial reflection on the comparison of Babe Ruth to Hank Aaron by CBS News correspondent Eric Sevareid on the National Evening News with Walter Cronkite. Roger Mudd substituting.
