Hank Aaron, born in 1934 in Mobile, Alabama, earned the nickname “Hammerin' Hank” for his stellar 23-season baseball career, primarily with the Milwaukee and Atlanta Braves. In 1974, he made history by breaking Babe Ruth’s home run record, finishing with 755. Beyond his on-field achievements, Aaron was a 25-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove winner, contributing to the Braves’ 1957 World Series win. He became a symbol of resilience against racial adversity and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982, solidifying his legacy as one of the sport’s greatest players.
