In a truly historic meeting of Hanks, Henry "Hank" Aaron — who played 14 seasons in Milwaukee during his career — met Hank, the Brewers dog that is his namesake.
The two met Thursday at Miller Park for the first time. According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Hank the dog is a stray that was adopted by the Brewers in spring training and named after Aaron.
Aaron, the legend who played 12 seasons with the Milwaukee Braves before finishing out his career with the Brewers, was in town for an event to raise money for his Chasing the Dream Foundation.
The Brewers tweeted out a photo of the meeting:
