Hank Aaron, The 1957 National League Most Valuable Player!!!

Hank had a monster season by all accounts in 1957.

Not only did he help lead his team to the World Series championship, but he took his game to another level – an MVP level.

The numbers:  198 hits, .322 batting average, 27 doubles, 44 home runs (league leader), 118 runs scored (league leader), and 132 RBI (league leader).  And as a 23-year youngster, he showed tremendous control at the plate – in 675 plate appearances, Hank struck out just 58 times, while walking 57 (15 intentionally).
