Hank Aaron received thousands of hate letters and numerous death threats as he approached passing Babe Ruth’s home run record of 714.  Aaron had finished the 1973 season with 713, and was afraid he might not live to play another game.

The Atlanta Journal (whose sports reporters also received death threats for their enthusiastic coverage of Aaron) had an obituary for Aaron ready in case he was murdered.

Aaron tied Ruth’s record on the first game of the 1974 season, and hit #715 on 8 April 1974, off Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Al Downing in the 4th inning.
