Georgia Tech lights up Bobby Dodd Stadium to honor Hank Aaron

Georgia Tech paid honor to the late Hank Aaron Saturday night, illuminating Bobby Dodd Stadium and Midtown Atlanta with blue stadium lights. The LED lights, which were installed prior to the 2020 season, were turned on at 8 p.m. and stayed lit for 44 minutes, in honor of Aaron’s jersey number with the Braves.

Earlier in the day, the football team also announced its plan to retire its No. 44 jersey this season in homage to Aaron, who died Friday at the age of 86.
