1976 HEADLINE: Hank Aaron’s Legendary Career Comes To An End
On this day in 1976, Hank Aaron played in his final game as a major league baseball player.
On the last day of the 1976 baseball season, Aaron and his Brewers teammates were at home in Milwaukee taking on the Detroit Tigers. Sadly, there were less than 7,000 fans in the stands to see Aaron make his final appearance in the big leagues.
Aaron was hitless in the game until the 6th inning when he hit a single off of Tigers’ pitcher Dave Roberts.
That at-bat would be the final one of his career. It was hit 3,771 of Hank’s amazing career!!
