Hammerin' Hank

  MOBILE, Ala. - It's kind of odd, but Hank Aaron's boyhood home now sits next to Hank Aaron Stadium, home to the Class AA Mobile Baybears of the Southern League.
  Workers moved the stadium and refurbished it, basically rebuilding it, during the last couple of years. As of April 10, 2010, it is a museum that you can visit before or during the game. You can follow the former all-time home run leader's career, as well as see period trinkets and appliances, some actually from the home that sat about 7 miles away.
  Sorry, you'll have to wait until next year. I caught the season finale Sept. 2. They beat the Chattanooga Lookouts 5-1.
