On April 8, 1974. Henry Aaron hit the 715th home run of his career, breaking the record set by Babe Ruth in 1935. Playing for the Atlanta Braves, Aaron broke the record at Atlanta in a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He finished his career in 1976 with a total of 755 home runs. The thirty-fifth anniversary is celebrated in our lobby display case, where you’ll see books, pictures, bobbleheads, ticket stubs and more of this baseball legend.
