Hank Aaron


Braves outfielder and eventual all-time home run king Hank Aaron hits his first and only career inside the park homer off of future Hall of Famer Jim Bunning. Hammerin’ Hank will finish the season as the NL leader in runs (113), home runs (39), slugging percentage (.533), and total bases (344). Bunning will finish the 1967 campaign second in Cy Young voting as well as the NL’s league leader in games started (40), innings pitched (302 1/3), shutouts (6), strikeouts (253), hit batsman (13), and batters faced (1,216).
