Henry Louis Aaron (February 5, 1934 – January 22, 2021), born in Mobile, Alabama. Nicknamed "Hammerin' Hank", was an American professional baseball right fielder who played 23 seasons of Major League Baseball (MLB), from 1954 through 1976.

He hit 24 or more home runs every year from 1955 through 1973 and is one of only two players to hit 30 or more home runs in a season at least fifteen times. In 1999, The Sporting News ranked Aaron fifth on its list of the "100 Greatest Baseball Players." In 1982, he was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

He was a three-time Gold Glove winner, and in 1957, he won the NL Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award when the Milwaukee Braves won the World Series.
He holds the MLB records for the most career runs batted in (RBIs) (2,297), extra base hits (1,477), and total bases (6,856). Aaron is also in the top five for career hits (3,771).
