It's a sad day for sports fans: home run titan and all-time great Henry "Hank" Aaron has passed away at the age of 86, according to his daughter.


Making his mark with the Atlanta Braves, the MLB record holder was born in Mobile, Alabama and was one of eight children. Perhaps his most iconic moment came on April 8th, 1974 when he broke Bath Ruth's all-time home run record of 715. The star accounts for a total of 755 home runs, a record that wasn't beaten until August 7th, 2007 by San Francisco Giants player Barry Bonds.

As a black man in the MLB, Aaron is credited with breaking numerous barriers. He first entered professional baseball in 1951 by way of the Negro League before being picked up by the then Milwaukee Braves.

Aaron had a historic 23 year career in baseball, and we will remember him fondly as the titan who broke the Babe's record. May he rest in peace.
