Henry Louis "Hank" Aaron is a former American baseball player who provided the voices for his own head in a jar, and his descendant Hank Aaron XXIV, in "A Leela of Her Own". Widely regarded as one of the greatest American baseball players of all time, Aaron played for 22 years in Major League Baseball for the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves and the Milwaukee Brewers, winning the 1957 World Series and in 1974 making baseball history after breaking the all-time home run record originally set by Babe Ruth. He retired in 1976, and was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in 1982.

Hank Aaron originally turned down his guest role on Futurama but was convinced to appear after Bob Uecker, his former Braves teammate, accepted a part. In a 2011 interview for ESPN.com, Aaron claimed he had no idea what the interviewer was talking about when asked about his time working on Futurama.[1]
