Various Notes on Hank Aaron’s Hitting Stats

Aaron had just one 3-homer game, while having 61 2-homer games, and he had at least one 2-homer game in each season from 1955 through 1974.
In two of his three 5-hit games, all five hits were singles.
In his first of six career 6-RBI games, he had one extra-base hit: it was a double, not a homer.

Aaron was intentionally walked 74 times in the 1970s, vs. 59 times in the 1950s.
He drew more walks, 70, in 1975, while hitting just 12 homers, than he did in any season before 1963. (Similarly, Willie Mays drew easily his most-ever walks in 1971, 112 of them, a year in which he hit 18 homers.)
Finally, Aaron hit six homers in 17 postseason games, which compares to Mantle hitting 18 in 65 postseason games.
