Hall of Famer Hank Aaron Passes Away at age 86
Rest in Peace to one of the greatest to ever do it!!! Mr. 755!
He wasn't just a force on the field, but an activist for change. Aaron broke into the major leagues at 20 years old (Milwaukee Braves) and required very little time to assimilate to The Show, batting .280 as a rookie (1954) and then belting 27 homers the following season. In fact, from 1955-73, Aaron accounted for 700 of 755 home runs, including eight different turns of 40-plus dingers during this period. He was also a testament to sustained greatness, representing the Braves (and later Brewers) as an All-Star a staggering 25 times. Full story here
