BayBears to Honor MLK with Free Museum Admission

January 12, 2012
The Mobile BayBears, Baseball America's Minor League Team of the Year, will grant free admission to the Hank Aaron Childhood Home & Museum on Monday, January 16th in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday.

The Hank Aaron Childhood Home & Museum was opened to the public on April 14, 2010 and is located at Hank Aaron Stadium. This is the actual home that Hank Aaron and his family lived in which was built by his father, Herbert Aaron. Numerous artifacts are on display from his career including a number of items on loan from the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. The Museum is a tribute to the values, ethics and passion of Mobile's own, Hank Aaron.

To pay tribute to the efforts of Dr. King, the BayBears would like to offer our hometown the opportunity to visit the Hank Aaron Childhood Home & Museum free of charge from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, January, 16th. For more information, please call 251.479.2327 or go to
