In fact I was an athletic supporter all my life." Then it was the "Hammer's" turn at the plate. Facing Kathy Neal of the Falcons, Aaron grounded out to shortstop and then singled to right field. "It is a lot different being 40 feet away from the pitcher instead of 60 feet in the majors," said Aaron, who is now vice president of player personnel for the Atlanta Braves. "The ball really gets on you in a hurry in soft-ball."

But Sunday in his final plate appearance, the 44-year-old native of Mobile, Ala. was challenged by the Falcons' star pitcher, Joan Joyce. r,She (Joyce) was something else," praised the soft-spoken Aaron after striking out. "That Softball comes at Sou and rises up around your ead by the time you swing at it." Diller and Aaron each did their thing Sunday. The "Ham" told her jokes, and the "Hammer" took his cuts.

They were at Hall High School for the benefit of the children. "It is great to be in Hartford for this worthy cause," said Aaron. "Softball is a new sport for me to play, but if it is for the kids, I'll try anything." r'What is better than coming out in the sunshine, clear air and blue skies in the summer to help the children," said the now serious Diller.
