July 20th, 1976: Hank Aaron’s final home run

The Home Run King, hammerin’ Hank Aaron, hit his final home run off of Dick Drago of the Angels. It was a solo shot in the 7th inning of a 6 to 2 Milwaukee Brewers win.

Hank broke the long standing record held by Babe Ruth Decades before the cheaters rolled into the league and started to chase Hank’s record. It’s a shame there are not more players like Aaron today.

Hopefully Hank’s career home run record stands for a long time and if it is ever approached again let it be by a player without a history of cheating.
