A Reason to Cheer Not Against Bonds, But for Aaron

In a word, class.

From a recent Sports Illustrated article about the Bluffton University baseball team's bus tragedy:

While Tim Berta, Bluffton's student coach, lay in critical care in Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital, he received an unexpected, unannounced visit from a dignified older gentleman. Berta, who had suffered severe head trauma, was unconscious. No matter, Hank Aaron sat beside the bed and talked to him all the same.
