Trophies will be provided by our presenting sponsor, Nike. They believe in the power of sport to bring people together. Their investments in equal, inclusive and active communities help to realize a thriving future for all. The trophy honors Hank Aaron’s lasting impact which began on the baseball field and transcended beyond sport.
ABOUT THE TROPHY
Nike will honor each winning team with the exact shoe made in honor of Hank Aaron and worn by MLB All Stars at the 2021 All Star game in Colorado at Coors Field as a trophy to each winning team to celebrate and forever commemorate their success both on and off the field and in the community. The Nike Air Griffey Max Metal is decorated with signature detailing of the four jerseys that Hank wore throughout his career – the Indianapolis Clowns, the Milwaukee Braves, Atlanta Braves, and the Milwaukee Brewers. On the interior of the ankle strap is a crowded cluster of his massive achievements, which include 25 All-Star Game selections, his 755 home runs, and many more marks that may never be replicated. His 44 jersey number is featured on the lockdown portion of the strap, while a sockliner features a bottlecap – a nod to Hank’s penchant to practice his swing using found objects.
