Hank Aaron has died. But his legacy lives on at American Family Field.



Hank Aaron speaks at the dedication of the plaque in 2007.

Milwaukee baseball legend Hank Aaron passed away today. He began playing for the Milwaukee Braves in 1954 and finished his career with the Brewers.


He was known as "Hammerin Hank" for his ability to hit home runs. On July 20th, 1976, Aaron recorded his 755th career home run while playing for the Milwaukee Brewers at County Stadium in one of the most historic moments in Milwaukee Brewers history and all of Major League Baseball.


In 2007, the UWM Civil Engineering and Mechanics Department calculated GPS measurements, reviewed surveys of County Stadium, studied aerial photos, and closely examined home run video to determine the exact location of where the ball landed.
