‘’HAMMER’’ HITS 500 ON THIS DAY IN 1968

HAC

Henry Louis "Hank" Aaron turned 81 on February 5.

During his days in Atlanta, Hank Aaron reached a number of milestones;
he was only the eighth player ever to hit 500 career home runs, with his
500th coming against Mike McCormick of the San Francisco Giants on
July 14, 1968, exactly one year after former Milwaukee Braves teammate
Eddie Mathews had hit his 500th. Aaron was, at the time, the second-
youngest player to reach that plateau.

Since his retirement, Aaron has held front office roles with the Atlanta
Braves. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982
and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2002.
