On August 1, 1982, Frank Robinson and Hank Aaron went into The Hall of Fame.  They were two of the greatest players of the post-war era.    

Robinson and Aaron broke into the majors in the 1950s.    

Robinson finished his career with a .294 average, 586 HR and 1,812 RBI.    He won the 1961 NL MVP and 1966 AL MVP.   He played in 5 World Series, 1 with the Reds and 4 with the Orioles.    

Aaron left the game with a .305 batting average, 755 HR, 2,297 RBI & 3,771 hits.   He was the 1957 NL MVP or the same year that the Braves won the World Series.    

Aaron and Robinson, two of my favorites!
