Ken Griffey Jr., while being one of the most prolific home run hitters in history, also owns another distinction—being one of a small group of players to have played Major League games in four different decades. His 22-season career saw him play for the Seattle Mariners, the Cincinnati Reds, and a little bit with the Chicago White Sox.

A member of the Baseball Hall of Fame, as well as the Mariners and Reds Hall of Fame, Griffey Jr. ended his career with 630 home runs—putting him seventh of all time.

Hank Aaron’s professional baseball career spanned 23 seasons from 1954 to 1976 and represented the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves and the Milwaukee Brewers. Over the years, Aaron played in 24 All-Star games (tied for the record with Willie Mays and Stan Musial) and won three Gold Gloves.

The former right fielder ended his career with 755 home runs—a record that held for 33 years—and is one of only two players in history to hit more than 30 home runs in a single season at least 15 times.
