Milwaukee Brewers

From the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum’s collection containing tens of thousands of artifacts, our curators have created each team’s Starting Nine by hand-picking nine must-see pieces for each of the 30 MLB teams.

Hitting this ball for a single on May 1, 1975, Hank Aaron drove in Brewers teammate Sixto Lezcano for his 2,210th career RBI. That run batted in broke Babe Ruth's longstanding total, making "Hammerin' Hank" the new and still-standing RBI king.

Rollie Fingers wore this Milwaukee Brewers jersey in 1981, when he led the big leagues with 28 saves and garnered a career-best 1.04 ERA. His performance led him to become the first reliever to win the Cy Young and Most Valuable Player Awards in the same season.

Wearing this cap on September 7, 2010, Trevor Hoffman closed out Milwaukee’s 4-2 victory over St. Louis, becoming the first pitcher to reach 600 saves. Three weeks later, the hurler earned his 601st and final save before retiring from the game.
