    Longtime MLB home run king Hank Aaron passed away Friday at the age of 86, according to CBS in Atlanta.

    Aaron’s daughter confirmed his death to WSB-TV.

    Aaron broke MLB’s all-time home run mark on April 8, 1974, with No. 715 surpassing Yankees legend Babe Ruth. Aaron overcame death threats as he was fighting to break the mark.

    I'll always remember him from his spot on Happy Days -- They kept calling him Henry

    As far as I am concerned, Aaron is still the home run leader, Bonds was on the juice later in his career. Sad news for a great player and person.

    totally agree, Bonds belongs in the Hall of Shame. Aaron is still the HR leader at 755.
