Bonus Trivia

.

Tollin on making "Hank Aaron: Chasing the Dream": "We have chosen to use the participants as the witnesses to history, as opposed to historians, academics and other uninvolved parties. If we're going to tell the story of Henry Aaron breaking into the starting line-up because of an injury to Bobby Thompson, we're going to hear it from Bobby Thompson, not from someone who remembers reading a story about it in The New York Times, -- quoted in an interview with TBS
