On 31 March 2009, MathBabbler's CSC100 class wrote a program to check to see if a number is a member of a Ruth-Aaron pair.

Wikipedia: "The name [Ruth-Aaron pair] was given by Carl Pomerance for Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron, as Ruth's career regular-season home run total was

`, a record which Aaron eclipsed when he hit his 715th career home run. Pomerance was a mathematician at the University of Georgia at the time Aaron broke Ruth's record, and the student of one of Pomerance's colleagues noticed that the sums of the prime factors of`

714`and 715 were equal."`

714On 8 April 2009, MathBabbler read in the Arizona Republic that on 8 April 1974, Hank Aaron hit his 715th home run to break Babe Ruth's record of
