MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Hank Aaron and his boyhood home both
received a Hall of Fame-style tribute.
The former home run king and six other Baseball Hall of Famers
attended the dedication of his home-turned-museum Wednesday in
Aaron's hometown, along with commissioner Bud Selig.

where the Double-A Mobile Bay Bears play. The baseball luminaries
attending included Willie Mays, Reggie Jackson, Ozzie Smith, Bob
Feller, Bruce Sutter and Rickey Henderson. Smith is also a Mobile
Aaron said afterward he felt quite proud because it was billed
as the first time a Hall of Famer's childhood home has been
relocated to a stadium.
It was built by his father, Herbert.
