LOS ANGELES - Atlanta Braves fans who will be attending the National League Division Series in Los Angeles will see a familiar face.
When they walk in, they will see plaques and posted honoring Hank Aaron right when they walk into Dodger Stadium. It's a commemoration of Hammerin' Hank's final home at the stadium. Aaron held Major League Baseball's record for career home runs for 33 years and holds several offensive records. He is also one of only two players to hit 30 or more home runs in a season at least fifteen times. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982.
A lot of history in the 56-year-old stadium. One other notable achievement for a Braves player in Dodger Stadium, albeit not memorial worthy, was left-handed pitcher Kent Mercker's solo effort no-hitter on April 8, 1994. He held seal a 6-0 victory over the Dodgers. It also was the last time a Braves pitcher throw a no-hitter.
There is a lot of Braves history in Dodger Stadium and the Braves are hoping for more in this series.
