Hank Aaron

By Jacob Gramann

Henry Louis Aaron

Henry Aaron known as "Hammerin Hank" is an iconic American professional baseball player. He is regarded by some people as one of the best baseball players of all time. He was also a civil rights activist who was born in Mobile, Alabama. He was the man who broke Babe Ruth's all time home run record. His record at 755 home runs stood for quite a while until Barry Bonds broke it in the early 2000s. He spent most of his career playing in the outfield for the Atlanta and Milwaukee Braves. Hank is still being honored today and is still known as a great baseball player.

"My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging."
