On April 23, 1954, Hank Aaron hit his first home run as a pro baseball player! He was only eighteen years old in 1952 when he started playing pro for the Indianapolis Clowns. Only a few players in baseball have had more than 3,000 hits. That is very high for a home run hitter! Hank Aaron was one of the first few black Americans to play pro baseball. He loved and married Mrs. Lucus. Around 1953 they had four happy little kids called Henry, Larry, Gail, and Dorinda. He was inducted in the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982. These are some nicknames: Hank The Hammer, Hammerin' Hank, and the Home Run King. After Hank Aaron reached the big leagues, he liked to tell baseball writers he developed his excellent wrist action by delivering ice as a kid in Mobile, Alabama.
