The baseball world lost a legend on Friday when Hank Aaron passed away at the age of 86. Aaron played 23 seasons in Major League Baseball, 21 of them for the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves. He was the all-time home run leader at the time of his retirement, hitting 755 career home runs. He was a civil rights leader, businessman and philanthropist. By all accounts, he was a greater man off the field than on it, which is saying something.

To help me remember the life and legacy of this baseball legend, I'm joined this week by Gabe Burns, Braves beat writer for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
