Hank Aaron 80

One of the greatest living baseball players, Hank Aaron, is celebrating his 80th birthday. The hall of fame player was born February 5, 1934 and is the author of three books, including “I Had a Hammer”, his 1991 autobiography. This book tells the story of a major league player with his roots in the Negro League, how he helped to integrate the South Atlantic League, and his years in Milwaukee – a city that loved him, to Atlanta, where he was shown little affection.  Our lobby display case remembers his playing days from Eau Claire to Milwaukee to Atlanta and back to Milwaukee.
