  • The day after the Atlanta Braves celebrate the 50th anniversary of Hank Aaron’s 715th home run – which made him the lifetime leader – the Atlanta History Center will unveil a exhibit honoring the slugger’s achievements both in and out of baseball.

    Called More Than Brave: the Life of Henry Aaron, the exhibit will be on view to the public from April 9 through the 2025 All-Star Game at Atlanta’s Truist Park.

    Included will be artifacts, photographs, and memorabilia donated by the Braves, the Baseball Hall of Fame, the Aaron family, and multiple other sources.

    Visitors will see the evolution of Aaron’s baseball career, which began with a stint in the Negro Leagues but led to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. When he was inducted in 1982, he had more home runs, more extra-base hits, more runs batted in, and more total bases than any player in the history of the game.

    “We hope this exhibition will serve as an inspiration to young people of all ages,”said Billye Aaron, who was married to Henry from 1973 until his passing on Jan. 22, 2021. “This is an extremely proud moment for the Aaron family. We are more than delighted to join the Atlanta Braves and Atlanta History Center in celebrating the extraordinary life and legacy of our beloved Henry.”

    The Atlanta History Center announced the Aaron initiative on Feb. 5, which would have been Aaron’s 90th birthday.

    According to History Center president and CEO Sheffield Hale, “This collection not only honors his incredible talents on the baseball field but also his extraordinary strength of character that he demonstrated his entire career – but most poignantly during the quest for No. 715.
