Monday marks 50 years since Hank Aaron’s record-breaking 715 home run. It’s when the baseball giant broke Babe Ruth’s all-time home run record.

On Monday’s edition of “Closer Look,” Rose talks with C.J. Stewart, a former Chicago Cubs outfielder and the co-founder of LEAD Center.

Stweart reflects on his time with Aaron and the legendary baseball player’s batting stance. He also shares why he believes it was Aaron’s calling to play baseball and how Aaron used his life to make the lives of others better.
