(ATLANTA, Ga.) — Baseball hall of Famer Hank Aaron slipped on ice on Friday night, reports the Atlanta Braves twitter account.
Aaron, 80, underwent successful partial hip surgery on Friday night and is expected to make a full recovery within six to eight weeks, according to the Braves account.
Aaron’s home run record of 755 was broken by Barry Bonds, who finished with 762, but that record has since been in question with the alleged steroid use.
Aaron was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982. He retired as a .305 career hitter after a 23-year career with the Milwaukee and the Braves.
