Hank Aaron Dies
« Topic Start: January 22, 2021, 12:14:48 PM »
So sad to hear that Hank Aaron died today.  I remember proudly owning his baseball card when I was about 10.

As the ESPN story notes:
"Aaron still holds major league records for RBIs (2,297), total bases (6,856) and extra-base hits (1,477), and he ranks among MLB's best in hits (3,771, third all time), games played (3,298, third) and runs scored (2,174, fourth)."  I forgot that he still holds so many major league records. He also did a lot of great work after he retired.

RIP, Hammerin' Hank!
