Baseball legend Hank Aaron to speak at Marquette


Baseball legend Hank Aaron will be in Milwaukee this weekend.

He's speaking at Marquette University's graduation ceremonies Sunday morning.

Aaron is also expected to receive an honorary doctor of humane letters degree.

Aaron played as an outfielder for the Milwaukee Braves, Atlanta Braves and Milwaukee Brewers from 1954 to 1976. His accomplishments include breaking Babe Ruth's home run record in 1974, a record that has since been broken.

He hit his 755th and final home run at Milwaukee County Stadium in 1976.

Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig will introduce Aaron.
