From the Washington Post

"Hank Aaron dies at 86. He used his Hall of Fame baseball career as a platform to champion civil rights.
Throughout his 23-year career, spent mostly with the Braves in Milwaukee and then Atlanta, "Hammerin' Hank" was admired as a model of steady excellence on the diamond, even though he lacked the swaggering charisma of Babe Ruth or the exuberant flair of his contemporaries Willie Mays and Roberto Clemente. He smashed Ruth's all-time home run record, finishing with 755, in defiance of threats to his life and never forgot the jeers he received while playing in the South during the days of segregation."

All I can say is another one gone! I guess that is the price for living as long as we have...our heroes go one at a time. He was a great player, and from all accounts a good person.

Ironic that less than 3 weeks before his death he took the vaccine hit to prove to blacks how safe it was.

This just reported by the Washington Post -- "Baseball Hall of Fame voters again reject Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Curt Schilling, keeping them out of Cooperstown
No players on this year's ballot reached the 75 percent threshold to gain induction, an uncommon but unsurprising outcome, with Bonds, Clemens and Schilling each previously falling short. This year's ballot highlighted the challenges that voters face when dealing with baseball's steroid era, as well as other character concerns in potential Hall of Famers."
