    Aaron lauded for grace amid racism during home run pursuit

    Reaction to Hank Aaron's death from former presidents to fellow Hall of Famers to everyone who knew him followed a theme: how the one-time home run king handled the racism he faced on the way to passing Babe Ruth's hallowed record nearly 50 years ago. Joe Carter met his childhood idol when he won the first Hank Aaron Award in 1986 after leading the majors in RBIs.

    Hank Aaron, baseball's one-time home run king, dies at 86

    His name is all over the baseball record book and, indeed, Hank Aaron could do it all. ''A breaker of records and racial barriers, his remarkable legacy will continue to inspire countless athletes and admirers for generations to come,'' said Carter, who often attended Braves games with his wife, Rosalynn.

    Robertson agrees to $900,000, one-year deal with Brewers

    Utilityman Daniel Robertson has agreed to a $900,000, one-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers that allows him to earn an additional $400,000 in performance bonuses. Robertson batted .333 with no homers and two RBIs in 17 games with the San Francisco Giants last season while making appearances at shortstop, second base, third base and the outfield. ''I feel like the game's kind of evolving that way,'' Robertson said Thursday.
