It’s 44 days until Opening Days. Home Run king Hank Aaron wore 44. Here’s a picture of Aaron hitting a home run off Mets’ pitcher Roger Craig at the Polo Grounds.
Hitting home runs against the Mets never gets old.
The Braves will wear this patch on their right sleeve this season.
On March 14th, 1954, Hank Aaron hit his first ever home run in Spring Training. The game was at Payne Park in Sarasota, FL. Payne Park was the Spring Training home of the Boston Red Sox at the time.
The baseball park was torn down in 1990 and now a city park resides in its place.
Happy 80th birthday to the true Home Run King, Hank Aaron!
