Truly iconic player.
A humble man in rough times. All he did was hit and play the game the way it is supposed to be played. No showboating or attention seeking. He earned his props the right way. Used his signature H&B bat in Little League (unfortunately his talent didn't rub off on me). Hammerin' Hank, Frank Robinson and Roberto were my favorite players of that era. RIP Sir!
Sucks, but not surprising. The last time I saw him he was looking pretty rough
The TRUE home run leader. RIP
One of my favorites
RIP Hank Aaron. A little bit before my time but a great career nonetheless.
