Playing for the Braves in both Milwaukee and Atlanta for 21 years (1954-74) and then heading back to Milwaukee to wind down his career with the Brewers (1975-76), "Hammerin' Hank" clobbered 755 HR in his MLB career. He led the NL in hits twice, and led in both home runs and RBI on 4 different occasions and won 2 NL batting titles. His 2,297 RBI is still #1 on the all-time MLB list.

Aaron also won 3 Gold Gloves, an NL MVP award (1957) and is the only man in MLB annals to be a member of an All-Star Game team 25 times. Keep in mind that from 1959-1962, there were 2 All-Star Games each season.

He is known for wearing uniform #44 for nearly his entire career, the only exception being his rookie season of 1954, when he wore #5.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office has declared that Aaron did NOT die due to COVID19, but from natural causes.
