Hank Aaron Standing Next to Mickey Mantle and Eddie Mathews

(Original Caption) When pitchers have nightmares you can bet your bottom dollar that he dreams he is facing these three players one right after the other in the same game. These three sluggers got together to play in the Braves' Old-Timers Game, New York Yankees against the Braves. Left to right: Hank Aaron, first player to have both 3000 base hits and over 500 home runs, Mickey Mantle, hit 536 home runs during his 18 year career with the Yankees, and Eddie Mathews, who along with Hank Aaron set a major league record for most homers by teammates with 863. Eddie has 442 of those. He was National League's All-Star third baseman in 1955, 57, 59 and 60.
