Two weeks before he died, Hank Aaron went to Morehouse University
to the COVID-19 vaccination clinic,
to get the first dose of the Moderna vaccine.

Hank Aaron interviewed by the Associated Press


Today, however, the
Atlanta Journal-Constitution provides links to news stories, photo galleries, and videos about the Milwaukee-born Aaron.

It was a thrill to see him play. He was such a nice man, and Milwaukee loved him. He kept his house in the Milwaukee area after Ted Turner moved the Braves to Atlanta. Milwaukee hated Turner, but they still love Hank Aaron.
May he rest in peace.

I saw a tribute this afternoon to Hank Aaron on the ABC America World News Tonight.

A special man.

Living in between 2 American League cities, Washington and Baltimore, before inter-league play commenced, I only got to see him play one time, the 1969 All-Star game, nevertheless he was a hero to all of us kids, a line drive hitter with a blacksmith's forearms and a Gold Glove outfielder, he was a rare bird, what's known in the big leagues as a 5 tool player. My favorite baseball analyst, Tim Kurkjian, remembered him on First Take yesterday.

Hank Aaron's biographer found Mr. Aaron to be a very hard sell
about authorizing the writing of a biography --
he had been through too much, some of it from the press,
not to have got burned and become extremely wary.

As the journalist persisted, and the two became friends,
over time, the negativity passed
but the modesty and decency stayed the same.

The biographer worked out a contract and made an offer,
and when receiving the offer, Hank Aaron asked politely:
"How many pages will it be?"

(from an ESPN article)

I remember Barry Bonds as well, and sadly,
somewhere in my own mind I have got
Hank Aaron and Barry Bonds all tangled up together,
recalling one of them as straight-as-a-die honest
and the other one as a substance-enhanced competitor.

I regret that.
Hank Aaron is surely memorable WITHOUT Barry Bonds.
