Baseball is a sport that has become really popular in a few countries around the world, with the USA, Japan and Taiwan being prime examples of nations where people tend to prefer this sport above all else. The sport has had countless amazing players involved in it, but suffice it to say that there are few that have been as impactful as the one that we are about to discuss here. This player who we will mention shortly batted in almost 2,300 runs over the course of his career which is a pretty staggering kind of number if you think about it.
We are of course talking about Hank Aaron, and he had a tremendous impact on the sport during the years in which he was active. You can’t find a player like Hank Aaron these days due to the reason that people just don’t work all that hard anymore, and another thing that set Hank Aaron apart is that he was committed to his home city of Milwaukee. He started out in the Milwaukee Braves in 1954, but soon the Braves moved to Atlanta.
Since he was contractually obligated to continue playing for the Braves, he did so until his contract ran out. After that he moved back to Milwaukee and started playing for a new team there called the Milwaukee brewers. Most players these days just go to any team that will pay them the most amount of money, but Hank Aaron was not that type of person at all. He was dedicated to Milwaukee and he spent his entire career there because he knew what truly matters is representing the place that you came from.
