The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum plans to dedicate a new, permanent exhibit, “Hank Aaron: Chasing the Dream.” The exhibit will be dedicated on April 25 and will explore Aaron’s early days in Mobile, Ala., his climb to the majors, his chase to pass Babe Ruth on the all-time home run list and his current work with the Chasing the Dream Foundation.

The Hall of Fame also plans to open a second exhibit called “Hank Aaron: Gallery of Records,” which will open in 2011. The exhibit will feature artifacts from Aaron’s career including the bat and ball used to hit home run No. 714, the bats and balls from his 3,000th hit, 500th and 600th home runs and the balls hit to record his 755th homer and 2,210 RBI. Aaron’s uniform shirt, pants, cap and helmet worn while he hit the record-breaking 715th homer will be in the new exhibit alongside his locker, 1957 World Series Ring, MVP award and many other artifacts.
