Did You Know…

Hank Aaron smashed 40 home runs for the Atlanta Braves in 1973 and finished the season with a career total of 713, one behind Babe Ruth’s record.  That season Aaron had the fewest hits(118), fewest extra-base hits(53), and fewest total bases(252) for a player with a 40-homer season.

My take - What a long off-season that must have been for Hank, huh??

  1. I wonder if the statute of limitations has run out on this, but during my 8th grade library class I took home the Sports Illustrated issue that Hank broke the record back in 1974.

    I probably will be sent to library purgatory……
