Some other notes about Aaron:

- third in career hits
- most seasons with 150+ hits
- had to deal with racism a lot, both as one of the first 5 black players in the Southern Atlantic League, and as he was approaching Ruth's record
- had several football scholarship offers after high school
- played SS & 2B and changed to OF shortly before his major league career
- hit cross-handed ("wrong" hand on top) until shortly before his major league career
