If you were to take a look at how sports was played just a few decades ago, you would realize that it is was more or less in line with the rest of American society. What we mean by this is that sports was heavily segregated, with Black baseball players mostly being relegated to the so called Negro League once all has been said and is now out of the way. This changed eventually, and one of the first people that managed to cross over into the regular baseball league is a player that made a massive impact on the history of the sport.
This player is none other than the legendary Hank Aaron, and it was truly tragic when people learned that had passed away about a year or so ago. Aaron is a member of the baseball hall of fame and he definitely deserved his place there, but when he died his cause of death remained a mystery. Chances are that his family did not want to breach their privacy which is why they said that he simply died peacefully in his sleep instead of giving any more details about what actually occurred in that instance.
Suffice it to say that Aaron probably died of natural causes otherwise the cause of death would have already been made public. He was 86 years old which meant that he was already in his last days, and many of his fans take comfort in the fact that he was able to enjoy those days with the ones that he loved most in this world namely his family. These fans will continue to remember him as the years go by since he was truly great.
