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??
