Hank Aaron died at the age of 86, once home run by the king. Hall of Famer has been subjected to racist threats on the way to a 755 home career.
Atlanta Braves says that Aaron died in his sleep peacefully; there was no cause. When he received the COVID-19 vaccine, Aaron did his last public appearance two and a half weeks ago. As he closed on Ruth’s cherished record of 714 Aaron was the target of a large hate mail.
He was shadowed by bodyguards constantly and was forced to move away from his teammates. Out of his 23 Braves, Aaron spent 21 seasons in Milwaukee before spending in Atlanta. Bill Clinton gives Aaron credit for helping to build a path of racial tolerance.
