Henry Aaron: Why I support Richard Sherman

January 27, 2014

Richard Sherman has the support of a home run king. Henry Aaron, Major League Baseball Hall-of-Famer and former home run record holder, offered his support to Seattle Seahawks’ Richard Sherman following the corner back’s emotionally charged post-game interview. Aaron explains, in an exclusive interview with SiriusXM Progress Make it Plain host Mark Thompson, how the backlash against Sherman was reminiscent of his experience while chasing Babe Ruth’s home run record: “I knew what he was going through.”

Aaron also provided a voice of reason, “I think that this country has bigger things to worry about than what a young man did in a professional football game.”

You can hear Make It Plain on SiriusXM Progress weeknights 6 pm – 9 pm ET.
