He held the MLB record for career home runs for 33 years, and he still holds several MLB offensive records. He hit 24 or more home runs every year from 1955 through 1973, and is the only player to hit 30 or more home runs in a season at least fifteen times.

Aaron holds the record for the most seasons as an All-Star (21) and for the most All-Star Game selections (25). He also won three NL Gold Glove Awards. In 1957, he won the NL Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award when the Milwaukee Braves won the World Series. He holds MLB records for the most career runs batted in (RBI) (2,297), extra-base hits (1,477), and total bases (6,856). Aaron is also in the top five for career hits (3,771) and runs (2,174). He is one of only four players to have at least seventeen seasons with 150 or more hits. He also is in second place in home runs (755) andat-bats (12,364), and in third place in games played (3,298). At the time of his retirement, Aaron held most of the game's key career power hitting records.

Mantle, nicknamed "The Commerce Comet" or "The Mick", played for the New York Yankees for his entire 18 season career (1951-1968). Mantle is considered by many to be the greatest switch hitter of all time and one of the greatest players in baseball history. He was a 20x All-Star, 7x World Series Champion, 3x AL MVP, and finished his career with 536 home runs.

Gary Sheffield played with 8 teams from 1988 to 2009 including the Milwaukee Brewers, San Diego Padres, Florida Marlins, Los Angeles Dodgers, Atlanta Braves, New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers, and the New York Mets.
