Baseball legend Hank Aaron died at the age of 86

Hank Aaron died at the age of 86. The American had the record of most home runs for 33 years (755), until Barry Bonds improved it in August 2007.

Aaron spent 21 seasons for Atlanta Braves in his long career. He won the 1957 World Series with the Braves. After two seasons with Milwaukee Brewers, he made a point behind his career as a baseball player in 1976.

Hammerin Hank holds the record of most selections for an All Star game. Of the 25 times he was invited, he played 24 times. He shares that record with Willie Mays and Stan Musical.

Hall of Fame

Aaron, who hit 755 home runs, earned a place in the Hall of Fame when he broke the record of the legendary Babe Ruth (714). His number (44) is never used at the Atlanta Braves again. After retirement, he held several positions at the Braves.

The former baseball player came in the news two weeks ago because he had been vaccinated against the coronavirus. He hoped to inspire black Americans to do the same.
