The Record-Setting Home Run

The Record-Setting Home Run

ATLANTA, GEORGIA - The home of MLB's Atlanta Braves, Truist Park features Monument Garden located on the main concourse behind home plate. The exhibit blends Braves photos, history and memorabilia with water, light and A/V elements. The centerpiece of Monument Garden, pictured here, is a statue of Hank Aaron, sculpted by world-renowned artist and Atlanta local Ross Rossin. The statue captures the moment of impact between the ball and bat as Aaron hit his 715th home run, breaking Babe Ruth's career home-run record. On the wall behind the statue, a video replays that very moment on April 8, 1974 while the 755 Sculpture below, made with 755 Hank Aaron Louisville Slugger baseball bats, commemorates Aaron's career home run total.
