ATLANTA (AP) -Estella Aaron, the mother of baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron, has died.
Susan Bailey, assistant to the former Atlanta Braves star, said Tuesday the funeral will be Saturday in Mobile, Alabama, where Mrs. Aaron lived most of her life.
Funeral home officials in Mobile said she died Monday in Atlanta. Her age or cause of death was not immediately released Tuesday.
Estella and Herbert Aaron had eight children, including Henry and Tommie, who also played for the Milwaukee and Atlanta Braves and died in 1984.
Henry Aaron broke Babe Ruth's career record of 714 home runs on April 8, 1974 at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. He retired with 755, a mark surpassed by Barry Bonds of the San Francisco Giants last August.
