Before building an impressive resume with the Washington Redskins that includes 36 interceptions, Brig Owens was a multi-sport high school student-athlete.
One of the sports he participated in was baseball, and at the time of his play, Henry “Hank” Aaron was taking the country by storm for his impressive offensive play.
Spending his first 21 professional seasons with the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves, Aaron would eventually pass Babe Ruth for the most home runs hit in a career.
As part of the Smithsonian’s Portrait In A Minute series, Owens remembers Aaron’s career next to a beautiful oil painting of the Hall of Famer by Ross Rossin.
