Milo Hamilton and Hank Aaron will be linked forever thanks to the Hall of Fame announcer's call on the slugger's record-breaking 715th home run.
Hammerin' Hank joined Hamilton on Tuesday to celebrate his retirement after 59 major league seasons.
Aaron told Hamilton: ''Your voice goes with me all over the world. Everywhere I go when people start talking about that home run, your voice comes back, and I want to say how much I appreciate that.''
Hamilton called Aaron's 715th home run on April 8, 1974, as a broadcaster for the Atlanta Braves. He said that was the highlight of his career.
''We're kind of joined at the hip with home run No. 715,'' Hamilton said of he and Aaron. ''To have him here and make that effort to come here ... that means a lot to me.''
Aaron called Hamilton a great friend and said that he helped him during his career. He reflected on the record-setting call.
''The more I hear his voice, the more I like it. I wish it had been 780,'' Aaron said with a laugh.
