ATLANTA _ Hank Aaron can appreciate someone with the ability and fortitude to overcome challenges.
The Braves’ slugger met Little League sensation Mo’ne Davis Tuesday and her youth league teammates, who got a tour of Turner Field.
Davis and the Anderson Monarchs, a Philadelphia youth baseball club, stopped in Atlanta as part of team’s three-week, 3,500-mile barnstorming tour to learn about the Civil Rights movement.
Aaron shared what it was like to grow up in Alabama and some of the lessons he learned early in life.
