Even Hammerin Hank couldn't stand the thought of living in a Biden Presidency.

I was fortunate enough to see him play when I was a kid, when I was visiting family in Decatur. 1972 or 3 i would guess. The only thing I really remember was that he did hit a home run. Even as a youngin', everyone knew who Hank Aaron was. RIP Sir, and thanks for the memories.

I saw him play many times back in the day. May he rest in peace and be blessed by God.

Used to watch him in San Diego when the Braves were part of the NL West. Sad to see him go.

I only got to see him play in person one time, he didn't hit a home run. A great ambassador of baseball and a first class person.

I remember when records like this had meaning. RIP Hank, and thank you. The "Steroid Boys" don't count.
