Weird to think that, at the time Aaron broke the record, lots of people were around to see Ruth set the record. As a kid, that 714 seemed like one of those legendary numbers from the Old Tyme Baseball Leagues of Yore, ...ancient history. Now 39 years is no older than my memories of The Big Red Machine or Roberto Clemente.

 
I thought about that the other day - kind of disquieting in a way.  My father saw Ruth and Gehrig play; when Henry Aaron broke the record, my father was a few months younger than I am now.
