Baseball lost a legend

Baseball is a little bit sadder this weekend.

The fans have lost a champion in Henry Aaron. Many consider him the true home run king of the game, thereby putting him in the inner circle of Hall of Famers. I will take it a bit further: to me, he’s the greatest player of all time. This is, of course, debatable as some will mention Willie Mays, Barry Bonds, Babe Ruth. But I’m going with Aaron simply because I believe him to be the greatest right handed hitter of all time. Defensively, he was no slouch, but even with the bat, he was just devastating.

We are all a little worse with Mr. Aaron no longer among us.

On to the links.
