Hank Aaron is one of just 13 players with 40 or more Batting, Baserunning, and Fielding runs. He also happens to be one of three (along with Barry Bonds and Willie Mays) who managed 800 Batting Runs, rather than 40. Aaron is most well-known for beating Babe Ruth’s career home run record, but he was also a remarkably consistent, all-around performer. Over a 14-year span (1956 through 1971), he posted between 6.6 and 9.1 WAR, averaging 7.7 per season.
