Did you know?

Baseball legend Hank Aaron had a history of home runs in New Orleans –  Crescent City Sports

Did you know that Hank Aaron wasn’t the fastest runner of them all? As a result, he hit only one inside-the-park home run during his career. That happened in 1967 in a game in Philadelphia, when he took on Phillies pitcher Jim Bunning. Aaron took a pitch to deep center field and “raced” around the bases, driving in two runs.

Because of his lack of speed, Hammering Hank stole only 240 bases in his MLB career.

Even though he had a lot of pop in his bat and set the All Time home run record at 755 in 1974, Aaron hit three home runs in one game only once.
