As you may be wondering: How much was Hank Aaron worth when he passed away? According to Celebrity Net Worth, the baseball star was worth $25 million. Not only was Aaron a great baseball player, he was also a great businessman. Aaron owned a series of dealerships that sold everything from BMW to Toyota throughout the state of Georgia. According to WIS News, Aaron also had 17 fast-food franchises under his 755 Restaurant Corporation.
Aaron’s work outside of baseball started with his endorsement deal that was secured with Coca-Cola by Clarence Avant, a music and entertainment executive who wanted the baseball star to have sponsorship. Avant demanded Aaron have a deal with the soft drink giant’s chairman, and, eventually, he was given an agreement that really raised his net worth. Also a philanthropist, Aaron gave away much of his money from Coca-Cola and later started the Hank Aaron Chasing the Dream Foundation.
