Henry Aaron’s home run and RBI records are still intact, but he’s dropped to #2 in alphabetical order. Giants rookie reliever David Aardsma didn’t just pass the Hammer by appearing in his first big-league game yesterday, he also was the winning pitcher.
Of course, since Aardsma is a pitcher, Hank is still #1 alphabetically among position players. Don Aase, however, loses the #1 spot for hurlers. Congrats to Aardsma — regardless of whether or not he has success in the future, he’s already attained baseball immortality with his name.
