The baseball world suffered a major loss on Friday morning with MLB Hall of Famer Henry “Hank” Aaron passing away at age 86.
The news was first reported by CBS 46 News in Atlanta.
Aaron was the longtime home run king and a legend for the Atlanta Braves.
No cause of death has been announced at this time.
While Aaron is no longer the home run king — a record that was broken by Barry Bonds in 2007 — he still ranks No. 1 for the most RBIs (2,297) total bases (6,856), and extra-base hits (1,477) in Major League Baseball history.
