Aaron is a career .264 hitter with 126 home runs. He was projected to platoon at third base for the Astros in 2009. Today it was announced that he will have surgery to replace a valve in his heart. This is a condition he's apparently had since the early 1990s which suddenly and unexpectedly became worse. Aaron is 36 years old and has had an 11-year career. It seems doubtful to me that he'll be back as a player. In addition to his father playing baseball, his grandfather, Ray Boone also played. Will there be a 4th generation of Boones? Here's a short retrospective of his baseball cards, except for his year with the Marlins. I've got no Marlin cards of Aaron Boone.
