Welcome to The Show! On Tuesday, legendary NBC news anchorman Tom Brokaw will stop by to chat about a historic doumentary on Hank Aaron that he worked on which originally aired on NBC in October 1973.

Brokaw spent time with Aaron during the summer of 1973, as the slugger closed in on Babe Ruth's all-time home run record. Aaron finished the 1973 season with 713 home runs, one short of tying and two short of breaking Ruth's career record. Brokaw's reporting resulted in a documentary on Aaron - "The Long Winter of Henry Aaron." ESPN will re-air the documentary under a new title - "ESPN Remembers: The Long Winter of Henry Aaron" - which will have new material, including recent interviews with Brokaw and Aaron. The documentary will air Tuesday, July 24 at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
