The U.S. military scores its first aerial victory, Reader's Digest is first published, Disney's "Peter Pan" premieres, and Manuel Noriega is indicted, all on this day.
1934: Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron, who in 1974 broke the career home run record set by Babe Ruth, is born in Mobile, Alabama. Aaron, who played 21 seasons for the Milwaukee and Atlanta Braves before playing two seasons for the Milwaukee Brewers at the end of his career, was a 25-time All-Star and helped lead the Braves to a World Series title in 1957 while also winning the National League MVP award. His career home run record of 755 was eventually surpassed by Barry Bonds, but he still holds the MLB records for the most career RBIs (2,297), the most career extra base hits (1,477) and the most career total bases (6,856).
