Henry Louis "Hank" Aaron
(February 5, 1934 – January 22, 2021)


Hank Aaron (
"
Hammer" or "Hammerin’ Hank"), was a pro
baseball
right fielder who played 23 seasons in Major
League Baseball
(MLB), from 1954 through 1976.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest baseball players
in history, he spent 21 seasons with the
Milwaukee/
Atlanta Braves
in the National League (NL) and two
seasons with the
Milwaukee Brewers in the American
League
(AL).

His 755 career home runs broke the long-standing MLB
record
set by Babe Ruth and stood as the most for 33
years; Aaron still holds many other MLB batting records.

He hit 24 or more home runs every year from 1955 through
1973 and is one of only two players to hit 30 or more home
runs in a season at least fifteen times. In
1982, he was
inducted into the
National Baseball Hall of Fame in his
first year of eligibility.
