Very sad. RIP Mr. Aaron!

I met him at a Tri-Star show years ago and got a baseball signed. The guy standing behind him kept telling him to sign and stop talking so much. He said these people paid their hard earned money and I'll talk to them if I want. After he signed my ball we talked for probably 10 minutes. We were both smiling because the guy behind him was getting mad.

35 year old braves fan from upstate ny.
Rest In Peace “Hammer”. You were 100% class and perhaps most dignified ballplayer Of all time.This one hurts.
Niekro, and also Sutton recently. (I’m 35 so only knew sutton as braves broadcaster on TBS).

I don't want to start a debate here, that's not what this is for, but statistically speaking he is arguably the most important baseball player ever. Beyond that he was a great human being, fighting for what's right. His biography "I had a hammer" is amazing if you haven't read it, a sad day for baseball and the nation as a whole.

Man that’s awesome, I would have loved to have been able to meet him

That would have been really cool, and comical! Great story!

I have an autographed copy of this book. I got it at a book signing in Houston and it is a fantastic read. The vitriol and harassment he endured is unimaginable and that he dealt with it with such dignity and grace in inspiring.
