Local man gets to shake hand of boyhood hero

Listening to Milwaukee Braves baseball games on the radio as a kid growing up in Iowa in the 1950s, Jim Leuenberger decided his favorite player was Hank Aaron.

Aaron did not disappoint Leuenberger. The Braves outfielder appeared on a record 25 All-Star squads, broke Babe Ruth's home run record and had one of the best, hall of fame careers in baseball history.

"He's a neat guy," said Leuenberger, who now lives in Shawano. "He's a solid guy. He played the game the right way."
