Hank Aaron

Hank Aaron was one of the greatest baseball players of all time. He is best remembered as the man who broke Babe Ruth's career home run record, eventually finishing his career with 755 home runs - a record that stood for 33 years. He was more than just a slugger, earning 3 golden gloves and getting over 3,700 hits. He also won a World Series championship and was an all-star on 25 occasions.
