There are many frequently asked questions (FAQ) about other parts of his career and we here at 755HomeRuns.com will answer those questions as they come in on this page.

Aaron won two batting titles during his career hitting .328 in 1956 and .355 in 1959.

3. Christian from Florida asked, "Did he win lots of awards?"

Probably not enough, but he did win a few including the National League Most Valuable Player Award in 1957, three Gold Glove Awards (1958-1960), and The Sporting News Player of the Year Award twice (1956 & 1963).
