Aaron's death prompts call to change name: Braves to Hammers

ATLANTA (AP) As his adopted hometown mourned Hank Aaron's death, some fans called on the Atlanta Braves to change their name to the Hammers in his honor.

"Hammerin' Hank" died Friday at age 86, drawing praise from all segments of society - including the current and former presidents - for his Hall of Fame career and providing inspiration to Black Americans by overcoming intense racism in his pursuit of baseball's home run record.

The governors of both Georgia and Alabama ordered flags to be flown at half-staff in honor of Aaron - the Hammer was born in the port city of Mobile and called Atlanta home for much of his life.
