Published:
NEW YORK — Richard Sherman is a hit with baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron.
The former major league home run king tweeted his support for the Seahawks' cornerback, who has received criticism for his rant against San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree following Seattle's victory over the 49ers in Sunday's NFC championship game.
In a tweet on Tuesday, Aaron told Sherman to "hang in there & keep playing as well as you did Sunday. Excellent job - you have my support."
Sherman thanked Aaron in a tweet, saying "your support is greatly appreciated and very humbling."
The cornerback has written for mmqb.si.com for most of the season, and on Monday wrote that he's not a villainous person and that his postgame interview with Fox reporter Erin Andrews stemmed from adrenaline and his dislike for Crabtree.
