ATLANTA (AP) - An exhibit focused on the career of baseball legend Hank Aaron is set to open at Emory University later this month.

Emory baseball players Kyle Arbuckle, Warren Kember and Brett Lake teamed up last year to dig through Emory's collection of Hank Aaron materials, donated in 2013 by a former scout for the Atlanta Braves.

The three juniors set out to explore the history of baseball legends and said they didn't expect to find a connection between themselves and names like Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks or Pete Rose.

The students' exhibit opens on April 24 at the university's Robert W. Woodruff Library. The collection includes scouting reports, contracts and letters that Aaron received as he chased Babe Ruth's home run record.
