Hank Aaron's 1974 Atlanta Braves teammates reflect on 50th Anniversary of 715

On Monday, April 8, the Braves celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Hank Aaron's record-breaking 715th home run. Grant McAuley talked to several of Aaron's teammates in advance of that big night at Truist Park. You'll hear from Tom House, the man who caught No. 715, as well as Ralph Garr, Ron Reed and Marty Perez on this edition of From The Diamond. Aaron's friends share their memories from that history making night and his impact on their lives.

Also on this week's episode of From The Diamond:

The Atlanta Braves swept away the defending National League Champion Arizona Diamondbacks over the weekend, but were dealt a serious injury blow as Spencer Strider's season appears to be over.

Grant McAuley discusses the ramifications of the Strider news and sizes up where the Braves can turn to fill those rather large shoes in rotation. Meanwhile, the Braves offense has done some big things, including a few key comebacks on the young season, and they were at it against Arizona. Marcell Ozuna, Jarred Kelenic and others are off to hot starts, but everyone seems to be finding ways to contribute.
