Today In Brewer History: A Legend Returns

If you asked nearly any knowledgeable baseball fan to name one Milwaukee Brave, they'd probably pick Hank Aaron. Aaron was a Brave for 12 of the organization's 13 seasons in Milwaukee, hitting 398 home runs and making eleven All Star teams. 

When the Braves left for Atlanta, however, so did Aaron. He played nine seasons at Fulton County Stadium and broke Babe Ruth's career home run and RBI records, among others.

On this day in 1975, though, Aaron returned to Milwaukee for the first time as a member of the Brewers, going 1-for-3 with a walk and driving in a run in the Brewers' 6-2 win over the Indians.  Hammerin' Hank was 41 years old and his best days were clearly behind him but, after being acquired in exchange for outfielder Dave May, he played in his final 222 games and hit his final 22 home runs for Milwaukee's new team.
