At a fundraising gala Saturday night, home run king and baseball legend Hank Aaron was joined by fellow members of baseball’s Hall of Fame, slugger Dave Winfield, and pitching great Ferguson Jenkins, to celebrate 25 years of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, Missouri. Of his short time of the Negro Leagues, Aaron told the crowd: “A lot of players there could have played in the big leagues. They taught me everything. They taught me how to live.”
