I’m truly at a loss for words right now. What is there to really say about a man like Hank Aaron? His accomplishments speak for themselves.

He spent decades playing baseball, won a World Series, was a perennial all-star and a man who had few equals in this life.

The man, who played for the Brewers and Braves, finished his career with a staggering 755 home runs, which was a record that stood for years.

Even though I’m not a huge baseball guy, I still understood the impact and power Aaron had on the game. Again, we’re talking about a man with few equals.

Now, at the age of 86, he’s passed onto the other side.

Rest in peace, champion.
