We remember the life and legacy of Hammerin' Hank Aaron. 

Legendary baseball player Hank Aaron has passed away at the age of 86. On today's Current Sports with Al Martin we reflect on his life and legacy. Listen as we roll-in two NPR features that touch upon the uncomfortable relationship that Aaron had with fame, as well as his activisim on and off the field while chasing Babe Ruth and the homerun record. We also touch upon the Detroit Lions hiring Dan Campbell as their new head coach. That, and more.
