This Day in Baseball History:
May 22, 1969 > Atlanta Braves slugger Hank Aaron is lifted for a pinch-hitter for the first time in his Major League career. Backup outfielder Mike Lum, batting for Aaron in the seventh, hits a double to contribute to the Braves' 15-3 blowout of the New York Mets. Aaron had come to bat 9,015 times in his career before being removed for a pinch-hitter.
