      Somewhere, he and Ruth are organizing a pick-up game. Nobody will pick Ty Cobb for his team.......

        Goes without saying, he did it the right way.

        Hank. Your legacy lives on...

            The loss of Henry Aaron is a gut-punch for me. A real hero to me, both on and off the field.

                I remember one of the first MLB games I ever attended was the Cubs against the Milwaukee Braves. My grandfather took me to Wrigley Field. When Hank came to the plate the first time, my grandpa stood and clapped. I asked him, "why are you cheering? He's not on the Cubs" (we were both Cub fans at the time). I'll never forget his response, "Hank Aaron is a great player and it doesn't matter who he plays for." R.I.P., Henry -- I always think of my grandfather when I think of him.

                    I agree that Aaron is the true Home Run Champion and may he rest in peace but I will remember him forever as a player who refused to give me his autograph after a (Milwaukee) Braves-Cubs game in 1958 at Wrigley after I got all the rest of the Braves autographs who were the defending World Champions and my second favorite team of all time.

And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country." Jim Caple, ESPN (January 12, 2011)

                        One of the greatest hitters of all time, and a total class act . i count myself lucky to have seen him play in Wrigley, back when i was a young man.
