On this day in 1957, Hank Aaron’s walk off HR clinched the NL pennant for the Milwaukee Braves.

The Braves won 95 games under manager Fred Heany.   The lineup included 3 future Hall of Famers:  Henry Aaron (.322, 44 HR & 132 RBI), Eddie Matthews (.292, 32 HR & 94 RBI) and Warren Spahn (21-11 & 2.69 ERA). 

The Braves moved on to beat the Yankees in the World Series!
