Henry Louis Aaron was born on February 5th, 1934 in Mobile, Alabama. His mom and dad are Estella and Herbert Aaron. He had seven siblings. When he was young, he had a dream to be a MLB player. His dad said “don’t keep your hopes up, ain't no colored ballplayers.” He didn’t have a bat or a ball so he used sticks and bottle caps instead. His dream really had a chance to be true when Jackie Robinson entered the league as the first ever black ballplayer. Hank attended Central high school and Josephine Allen institute.
