Eddie Mathews hit his 200th career home run on June 12, 1957, becoming the second youngest player in MLB history to reach the milestone. The blast was not enough for the Braves, however, as Milwaukee lost to the Brooklyn Dodgers, 11-9, at Ebbets Field.

Milwaukee’s biggest home run hitter I think; even more than Aaron hit in Milwaukee because of Atlanta stealing away the Braves, but then the Brewers stole the Pilots from Seattle. When does it end?
The free market of baseball… Baseball is business and business goes where the market is at.
