Hank the Ballpark Pup has been through quite a bit this year since he wandered into the Milwaukee Brewers' spring training complex. Months later, he has finally met the man he was named after, Hank Aaron.

The baseball legend was in town for a charity event this week, which made it the perfect time for him to meet the pup for the first time.

Aaron slugged 420 of his 755 career home runs while playing for Milwaukee (both the Braves and the Brewers), so that might explain why the pup is named after the Hall of Famer.
