News broke on Friday morning that MLB Hall of Famer and longtime home run king, Henry "Hank" Aaron, has passed away at the age of 86.

The Alabama native spent 14 of his 23 seasons playing baseball in Milwaukee where he would go on to break numerous records and become a powerful voice for civil rights. Aaron returned to Milwaukee in 1975 to play for the Brewers, where he would finish his career one year later.

Hammerin' Hank Aaron finished his career with 755 home runs, a record that stood until 2007. Aaron still holds the MLB record for RBIs (2297), total bases (6,856), and extra-base hits (1,477). He ranks third all time in hits (3,771) and games played (3,298).

Aaron was awarded the NL MVP in 1957 at the age of 23, where he would lead the Milwaukee Braves to a World Series Championship that same year. He would also go on to become a 25-time all-star, 3-time gold glove winner, and 2-time batting champion.

Hank Aaron will be dearly missed in the sate of Wisconsin and by the Brewers organization, but his legacy in baseball and within the communities he's touched throughout his life will never forget what he's done.
