Last Friday saw the unfortunate passing of a baseball legend. Hank Aaron, a #6 BEIR, and one of the most celebrated and admired athletes of all time, died of “natural” causes at the age of 86. Aaron recently received the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine only two weeks ago, encouraging other black Americans to do the same. Despite his age, he was healthy and felt the vaccine would be good, for him and others. It’s also known that Henry wouldn’t have been given the Covid vaccine if he had any other ‘serious’ health complications. So what really happened? Despite the media suppressing all negative info on the vaccine, and it’s many adverse reactions lately, there is wide speculation that Aaron died from complications from the vaccine, particularly given his age and ethnicity. Experts insist the vaccine was not the “likely” cause, but the lack of a specific “cause” of death has only continued to fuel the speculative fire.
At any rate, Aaron’s career was an amazing testament to the quintessential talented #6 BEIR. He won the National League MVP in 1957, was one-time world champion, two-time National League batting champion, three-time Golden Glove winner, four-time RBI champion and four-time home run champion. He broke Babe Ruth’s (#13 FCIR) hallowed home run mark on April 8, 1974, with 715 homers. He went on to hit 755, only to be broken in 2007 by a #1 FEAR FEAR Barry Bonds. Former President George W. Bush (#15 FCIL) stated, “Laura and I are saddened by the passing of Hank Aaron. The former Home Run King wasn’t handed his throne. He grew up poor and faced racism as he worked to become one of the greatest baseball players of all time.”
Aaron never shied from the racial fray during his lifetime. “On the field, Blacks have been able to be super giants,” he once said. “But once our playing days are over, this is the end of it and we go back to the back of the bus again.” Aaron was a relatively quiet man, but as one critique put it, he “led a life of loud home runs.” Friends said he didn’t fear anything. “I remember one day he told us not to sit by him, ’cause somebody was gonna shoot him that day,” former teammate Dusty Baker (#13 FCIR) said. “We were like, ‘Oh, Hank, we’re down with you man.’ Y’know, and me and Ralph were lookin’ the whole time and he wasn’t even — he wasn’t lookin,’ acting like he wasn’t afraid at all.” Talk about the fearless #6!
And have you heard why Henry turned out to be a such a great hitter? Yes, his Brain Type was highly advantageous, but he developed a batting style that few would ever know, much less use. Henry grew up poor and used a stick to hit rocks instead of a store-bought bat and baseball. That wasn’t his secret, however. Since no one ever taught him to swing properly, he accidentally implemented a cross-handed hitting approach. For other Brain Types this could be disastrous, but for the fine-motored #6 Aaron, it was perfect.
This unusual hitting approach enabled him to minimize his dominant fine motors while allowing more gross motors actions. Without getting into the weeds, this same technique is used today with modern golfers. The fine-motored players usually get in trouble due to excess arm and wrist action. Thus, they are finally learning how to inhibit those natural gifts by putting cross-handed, using the “claw”, and so forth.
2021 also saw the passing of two #5 FEIR baseball legends, Tommy Lasorda and Don Sutton.
