Henry “Hank” Aaron may not have played the same historical role as the great Jackie Robinson, who broke the color line in Major League Baseball in 1947, but “Hammerin’ Hank” achieved remarkable records that continue to stand the test of time. Plus his legacy has transcended the sport he played for 25 total years. Hank AaronWhen he died of natural causes on Jan. 22 at the age of 86, Aaron still held the number two spot for most home runs at 755 behind Barry Bonds. He remains number one in total bases (6,856) and runs batted in (2,297); number two in at-bats (12,364), behind Pete Rose; and number two in hits (3,771), behind Rose and Ty Cobb.Aaron played in the all-Black Negro Leagues until he joined MLB’s then-Milwaukee “Braves” that won the 1957 World Series and eventually moved to Atlanta. That same year, Aaron was named the league’s most valuable player. He was a 25-time All-Star before he retired in 1976. In 1982, he was inducted into the Baseball Home of Fame with the second highest percentage of votes ever, after Cobb. But even with all these great accomplishments, this incredible ballplayer faced tremendous racist backlash, especially as he approached breaking the 714 home-run record of the legendary New York Yankee, Babe Ruth. Aaron, who experienced racism firsthand growing up in Mobile, Ala., received 3,000 letters a day for almost a year, dripping with horrendous racist venom including death threats against him and his family. These white supremacists could not stomach the fact that a Black ballplayer was about to rupture the most storied record in baseball, held for almost 40 years by arguably the greatest MLB home run hitter of all time — who happens to be white. When Aaron broke Ruth’s record on April 8, 1974, the white MLB Commissioner Bowie Kuhn was not present in the stands — an insult — for this historic feat. As Aaron was running the bases after breaking the record, two young white men ran on the field. Luckily it was to pat Aaron on the back and congratulate him. They could have easily been two racists who might have caused him great physical harm or worse. Why was there not security organized for him, given the duress he was enduring for months? Twenty years after his home run feat, Aaron admitted to a Black sports columnist, William C. Rhoden, “April 8, 1974, really led up to turning me off on baseball. It really made me see for the first time a clear picture of what this country is about. My kids had to live like they were in prison because of kidnap threats, and I had to live like a pig in a slaughter camp. I had to duck. “I had to go out the back door of the ballparks. I had to have a police escort with me all the time. I was getting threatening letters every single day. All of these things have put a bad taste in my mouth, and it won’t go away. They carved a piece of my heart away.” (New York Times, April 1994)But Aaron never feared political controversy. According to CubaNews, “Aaron visited Cuba in 1996 and witnessed a game between Pinar del Rio and Industriales of the Selective Series that year, at the Capitán San Luis stadium, and fraternized with the players of both teams.” (Jan. 22)How best to honor Aaron’s legacy?Aaron was not a political activist like his contemporary, Muhammad Ali, or today’s Colin Kaepernick, but he was an important symbol for civil rights with his endurance and determination. He not only wanted to see more African American baseball players, he wanted to see more African American general managers, team executives and even team owners. As of 2020, less than 8% of MLB players are African American compared to 57.5% white and 32% Latinx. In 1978, there were 27% Black players. There have only been 15 Black general managers in MLB history. One explanation given for this huge discrepancy was in a tweet from ESPN’s Howard Bryant: “Every Black manager ever hired in MLB history has been an ex-player, which means every successful Black candidate has first needed to have been one of the 750 best players in the world.” (Jan. 7)The numbers are even worse when it comes to the National Football League, where at least 75% of the players are African American. Yet out of 30 teams, there are only two Black head coaches — the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Mike Tomlin and the Miami Dolphins’ Brian Flores. There is one Latinx coach, the Washington Football Team’s Ron Rivera, and the New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh is of Lebanese descent. Sports under capitalism mirrors the rest of society, which is riddled with all forms of inequality, especially racism. And just as it took mass struggle to change the team names and eliminate racist mascots that degraded Indigenous peoples in Washington and Cleveland, it will take even more struggle to achieve similar concessions from Aaron’s Atlanta team and the Kansas City “Chiefs” football team. The women and men players from the National Basketball Association led the way in fighting racism this summer. They refused to play in playoff games to protest racist police brutality following the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis., which left him paralyzed. These kinds of bold actions will help keep Aaron’s legacy alive. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Turco to Receive Spirit of the Land-Grant Mission Award By Andy Eubank – Feb 17, 2014 Turco to Receive Spirit of the Land-Grant Mission Award Previous articleAdministration to Speed Implementation of Farm Bill Disaster ProgramNext articleNatural Gas up 9% Last Week and Oil Up 5 Weeks Straight Andy Eubank SHARE Purdue University agronomy professor Ron Turco will receive the university’s 2013 Spirit of the Land-Grant Mission Award for his work to assess and improve the environmental health of water and soil.The award is presented yearly to a Purdue faculty member in the colleges of Agriculture, Health and Human Sciences, or Veterinary Medicine whose work exemplifies the university’s land-grant mission of discovery, engagement and learning.Turco investigates how the behavior of microorganisms and the processes they control in water and soil are influenced by human activity. He conducted groundbreaking research on the impact of nanomaterials on the active microbiology of soil and also worked with Purdue’s animal research farms to responsibly manage animal waste. He began his career at Purdue by examining Indiana’s well water for possible contamination and currently directs the Indiana Water Resources Research Center, which supports research and education in water science.“Ron Turco has spent his career creating knowledge that can be applied to tackle some of the most important environmental problems facing Indiana and the nation,” said Karen Plaut, senior associate dean and director of agricultural research. “This is truly a well-deserved honor.”Turco has worked on water issues with numerous groups, including the Wabash River Enhancement Corporation, the Indiana Water Resources Association and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management. He also developed an education program with the state’s Department of Natural Resources on the best practices for maintaining the quality of ground and well water.“Dr. Turco is an example of a scholar who is addressing fundamental challenges to society,” said Jason Henderson, associate dean and director of Purdue Extension. “His ability to move between the lab and field and apply research to practical application and policymaking work reflects the core mission of a land-grant university.”A program honoring Turco will be held Feb. 21 at 3:30 p.m. Eastern time in Pfendler Hall’s Deans Auditorium on the Purdue campus. Turco will present a seminar titled “Building Environmental Sustainability with Education, Research and Extension” followed by the award presentation and refreshments.Turco will receive $10,000 to support his research program, a $1,500 honorarium and a commemorative plaque.

According to the latest USDA update, 77% of Indiana corn and 80% of Indiana soybeans have been harvested. Most fields in NE Indiana have been harvested; and, with rain on the way, farmers are working hard to finish this week. “We are about 95% complete on soybeans and close to 2/3rds on corn,” said Brian Schrader with Pioneer.Nationally, 72% of soybeans and 61% of corn has harvested. Schrader told HAT that corn yields have been good even in places where planting was late due to heavy spring rain.“I am hearing yields of well over 200 bpa in most of my territory — some fields averaging 250 up to 275 bpa.” He noted 70 bpa soybean yields are common, except in some areas where disease and quality issues have resulted in a drop in top end yields.Schrader says these yield numbers are proving to be a surprise to many growers, who saw less than Ideal growing conditions early this year. He stated, “I am very pleased with the yields because they are much better than I had expected earlier this year.” Facebook Twitter

Follow the news on Egypt The raid reinforced the climate of terror for media personnel in Egypt on the eve of World Press Freedom Day, which is celebrated today.Journalists’ Syndicate president Yahia Qallash said around 50 plainclothes policemen stormed into the syndicate’s headquarters on the evening of 1 May to arrest the two journalists, who had been staging a sit-in inside in protest against warrants for their arrest and searches of their homes.They are Amr Badr, the founder and editor-in-chief of the opposition news website Yanair (January), and Mahmoud El-Sakka, a journalist who works for the site.In response to this “unprecedented” raid on the Journalists’ Syndicate, its members have been protesting inside its headquarters and on social networks to demand the release of the journalists and the interior minister’s resignation.The NGO Journalists Against Torture has announced a 24-hour strike in solidarity with the Syndicate, which convened a general assembly for tomorrow and announced a permanent sit-in inside until the meeting.“We condemn this raid on the headquarters of the Journalists’ Syndicate and we call on the authorities to intervene to obtain the immediate release of these journalists and the withdrawal of the charges against them,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “Journalists have no place being in prison, especially when all they did was criticize the government.”According to the Syndicate’s charter, a member of the prosecutor-general’s office must know and the president of the Syndicate or his representative must be present when the police enter its headquarters. The interior ministry issued a statement denying that the police stormed the building or that violence was used. It said the two journalists were arrested without use of force, as a result of a decision by the prosecutor’s office and in coordination with the head of security at the Syndicate.The charges against the two journalists include spreading false rumours about Egypt’s decision to return two small islands, Tiran and Sanafir, to Saudi Arabia and inciting protests against President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s government.The police prevented the holding of a conference inside the Syndicate’s headquarters on 1 May to mark Labour Day. They also prevented many journalists and demonstrators from entering the building on 25 April, when a series of demonstrations throughout Cairo were quickly dispersed and dozens of journalists who had gone to cover them were detained for several hours.The Journalists’ Syndicate filed a complaint against the interior ministry about the abuses against journalists during the 25 April demonstrations.Sakka, one of the two journalists arrested on 1 May, was previously arrested on 30 December on various charges including membership of an illegal group. He was released at the start of March pending the outcome of the investigation.Currently the world’s fourth biggest prison for journalists (after China, Eritrea and Iran), Egypt is ranked 159th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.
