Atlanta Brave legend Henry Louis Aaron died Friday morning at 86 years old, according to his daughter.

He was born in Mobile, Ala., on Feb. 5, 1934 and was one of eight children born to Herbert and Estella Aaron, according to WSBTV.

Aaron played from 1954-76, almost entirely with the Braves, first in Milwaukee and later in Atlanta. He was a 25-time MLB All-Star (including two selections each year between 1959-62, when two All-Star games were played per season). In 1957, he led the team to their first World Series pennant since 1914. He was inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame in 1982.:snip:

I remember watching as he broke Ruth's record. One of those images that stays with you for life.

Before athletes were the Prima Donas that they are today.
