This Sunday is Hank Aaron Bobblehead Day presented by U.S. Cellular

In 1963, as a member of the Milwaukee Braves, Hank became the first MLB player to hit over 40 home runs and steal 30 bases in a single season. He finished that year with 44 home runs and 31 stolen bases.

Earlier this season, we celebrated Ryan Braun’s 40-30 season with a bobblehead and this Sunday, we’ll be featuring Hank in a Milwaukee Braves uniform for his own special 40-30 bobblehead and you’ll want to be in attendance when the Crew takes on the New York Mets to score yours.

You’ll notice that the back of the jersey on the bobblehead reads “H. Aaron.” That’s because Hank’s younger brother, the late Tommie Aaron, a first baseman and left fielder, also played for the Milwaukee Braves at the time (1962-1963; 1965). [In addition, Tommie played with Hank for the Atlanta Braves (1968-1971). Fun Fact: Tommie hit a total of just 13 Major League home runs during his career, but when combined with Hank’s 755, Tommie and Hank still hold the Major League record for the most career home runs between two brothers.]

For those keeping score at home, this will be the third Hank Aaron bobblehead that we’ve given away at Miller Park. The first was in 2002 and then in 2010, we celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Brewers Baseball with bobbleheads from various decades and Hank was our honoree from the 1970s. Don’t miss out on the chance to add this one to your collection!
