Braves To Honor Hank Aaron With A Commemorative Patch


The Braves will be wearing a commemorative patch on the right sleeve of their uniforms for the 2014 season to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Hank Aaron’s record-breaking 715th home run.  This image of the patch was tweeted out by the official Braves twitter account this morning:

 

Always a good thing to celebrate the true home run king, especially with this really sharp-looking patch.  It now makes more sense why the Braves are going with the “small a” look for their Spring Training/Batting Practice caps since they are similar to the hats worn by the Braves 40 years ago when Aaron broke the home run record.
