Move Over Babe, Here Comes Henry

January 23, 2021

“Move Over Babe (Here Comes Henry),” written by Bill Slayback and Ernie Harwell, recorded by Bill Slayback, 1973. The song commemorates Atlanta baseball player Hank Aaron, who broke Babe Ruth’s 714 home run career record. With Hank Aaron’s death, the title sounds like a seating change in baseball heaven.


“Babe Ruth’s record was a mythical monument of white superiority. Hank Aaron tore it down.” Kevin B. Blackistone, Washington Post
