Georgia State University plans to name its new athletics complex in Summerhill after Hank Aaron and create a museum in his honor, according a person familiar with the project.

Georgia State has been working with Aaron’s widow, Billye, on the design. It will feature a 24/7, walkthrough memorial for the Atlanta Braves icon, who died on Jan. 22, at the former site of Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. It will sit between GSU's soon-to-be built baseball and softball complex, which will also be named after Aaron.

The museum will be adjacent to the "715" home plate location where Aaron broke Babe Ruth’s iconic home run record in 1974. It will also highlight a redesigned plaza area that will recognize Aaron, one of the greatest baseball players of all-time.
