We remember two great teammates:  Henry Aaron and Eddie Matthews.   They played together with the Milwaukee Braves.   

On July 14, 1967, Matthews hit # 500, now with the Houston Astros.

On July 14, 1968, Aaron  hit # 500, now with the Atlanta Braves.

Aaron & Matthews ended up with 863 home runs in their 13 years together with the Braves.   

Matthews retired after the 1968 season.   He was traded by the Braves to Houston and then to Detroit.  He had 4 at-bats in the 1968 Word Series and picked up another championship ring.

Aaron returned to Milwaukee in 1975 and played until 1976.

Matthews came up with the Boston Braves but enjoyed his biggest years in Milwaukee.    He led the National League with 47 home runs in 1953, the team’s first year in Milwaukee.     

Aaron came up in 1954 and hit 755 career home runs.   

Aaron & Matthews played in the World Series in 1957 & 1958.   It was Matthews who made the last out to beat the Yankees in 1957.

Great teammates!
